    A confusing and painful experience

    We handle all aspects related to the dissolution of a marriage, including asset division, child custody issues, spousal support, child support and professional fees.

     

    We are often brought in to try cases that were initially handled by other law firms. We represent clients in both trials and appeals. We have represented same-sex couples well before their right to marry was accepted and continue to do so today.

    Our Process

    Who we represent

    We represent individuals across the spectrum of industries from finance, to real estate to technology. We represent first-time entrepreneurs and fourth-generation family business owners, as well as professionals in the arts and entertainment, athletes and politicians, including high-ranking government officials. We represent parents of every kind, from traditional stay-at-home parents without the income or assets to working mothers and fathers, as well as individuals-such as grandparents-who may have shared parental responsibilities for a meaningful period of time.

    Our experience

    Our experience before both the High Court, Regional, Children’s, Maintenance and Domestic Violence courts are unrivalled. Through our successful representation of clients-including before the highest court in South Africa and we have obtained some of the most significant rulings in matrimonial and family law.

    Distribution of assets

    Works of art, significant collections of art and other valuable collections, hedge, private equity, venture capital and other investment funds, including the asset management companies.

    Our successes in financial-related disputes
