Our professional, financial advisers can help you navigate complex financial issues, including:
- Investments and more
If there are complex financial issues to resolve as part of your split, our independent financial advisers will be able to give an overview of where the likely issues will arise and provide some initial guidance, which will save you time and expense later on.
Our financial advisers will also be able to articulate complex issues in a straightforward way allowing both parties, whatever their financial experience, to better understand what their options are.
Professional Financial Advice
In some cases, in order to gain a clear understanding of the financial issues to be discussed, your CFLG lawyer – with your consent – will invite relevant financial professionals to join collaborative meetings or provide written information to assist in your discussions.
For example, where the assets of your marriage include a business, it can be very helpful to involve a forensic accountant to provide a valuation of the business, together with information about the tax implications of any proposals you may have for dealing with the business on separation.
Similarly, where there are pensions to be considered, pension experts can provide valuations and other information about pension assets to help inform your discussions, and ensure you understand the implications of any decisions you wish to make.
Our collaborative family lawyers will work with financial professionals who are appropriately qualified, understand how to work in the collaborative process and add value to your case.
