James Maguire & Co offer Family Law Services in London

divorce lawyer london

Maguire Family Law is one of the best divorce and family law practices in the country and is now expanding its work in to London.

James Maguire, Principal at the firm, said:

“”I am seeing more and more demand for our family law services in London. Not only do we specialise in complex divorce and finance cases; and those cases with an international element but we are less expensive than our competitors in London. I am very excited by this move and how we can add value to individual cases.”

The services we offer are:

  • Divorce
  • Finances (including businesses and pensions)
  • Children
  • International:
    Offshore assets
    Child relocation
    Child abduction
  • Prenuptial agreements

London is recognised as the divorce capital of the world and there is an ever increasing number of parties who travel to England to seek divorces here often thinking that they will be financially better off but that presents a risk to the other party. Another factor is that the English courts are more willing to exercise its discretion on a case by case basis about whether a prenuptial agreement is binding.

Divorce settlements have spiked in the past few years. In recent years London has seen:

  • £337 million pay out by Sir Chris Hohn
  • Insurance Magnate John Charman was required to pay £48 million to his ex-wife
  • Last year saw the £72 million settlement between Texas financier Randy work and his wife Mandy Gray and which again prompted London again to be dubbed “divorce capital of the world

Thousands of wealthy Chinese, Russians, Americans and Europeans, many of whom work in the City of London financial district or own property in England now end their marriages before an English court. Where there is an international element in a case it is very important that a divorcing party seeks specialist legal advice as the financial outcomes in each jurisdiction can be very stark.

We are very much experts in relation to big ticket financial cases There are no precise figures on how many divorces in London have an international element but James Maguire commented that almost every case has some international link whether in relation to nationalities, overseas assets or simply people working or moving between countries. We specialise in international family law as well .
