International Trust and Divorce Litigation is an indispensable practical guide for offshore lawyers, trust companies, private bankers and matrimonial lawyers who represent high net worth clients.
"detailed information ... a valuable source of reference. There is a scarcity of detailed literature devoted to trust/offshore issues in a matrimonial context ... this readable book helps fill that void” Solicitors Journal
"this is a much needed book . . . It provides practical advice and insights, soundly based on clear legal analysis. The editors have done a remarkable job in bringing much clarity to complex areas of domestic and private international law" Mr Justice David Hayton of the Caribbean Court of Justice, Foreword
"the balance between rigorous analysis – too often lacking in the past – and practical advice is excellent ... this is a book which needs to be in the bookcase and in the briefcase of everyone involved in a divorce case with a trust element ... any divorce practitioner involved with a trust would do well to consult this book. After all, we need to remember that it was a proper application of the law of trusts, and nothing else, which led to the wife's ultimate success in Prest v Petrodel" SIR JAMES MUNBY, Family Law journal
"the most important element of this leading work is the way it addresses divorce litigation juxtaposed with trust litigation. In other words, it brings them together in an extraordinarily helpful way ... For any lawyer who has wondered why the power in s24 of Matrimonial Causes Act 1973 is to be so feared, is concerned about the difference between prenuptial and postnuptial settlements, or just wants to understand what is likely to happen when that carefully drafted trust is subject to the analytical eye of the divorce lawyer, this is a vital work ... invaluable for any offshore trustee who gets caught in the crossfire of the warring parties ... this book will leave that trustee forewarned and therefore forearmed to deal with the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune ... All those connected with its publication should be thanked for leaving us with such an excellent source of wisdom and guidance" Edward Buckland, STEP
