Before, during and after a marriage there are different financial aspects to contemplate - not least when significant assets or businesses are involved.
Increased globalisation is also resulting in more "cross-border marriages" which can significantly complicate legal rights and entitlements.
Kromann Reumert's Private Clients group advises on all legal aspects of matrimonial property. Our extensive international network enables us to smoothly address the legal challenges encountered by our clients where marriages involve multiple jurisdictions.
