We protect you and your assets through divorce

We specialise in New Zealand divorce cases where there are significant assets including family trusts, complex business structures, high income and multi relationship property ownership.

The High Net Worth Individual

Jeremy Sutton and his team of barristers specialise in divorce cases which involve significant assets such as businesses and/or companies, multiple properties, substantial incomes and investment portfolios.

The Business Owner

Jeremy and his team are the best at understanding business and the complex issues which can arise involving business and company joint ownership. If your significant business interests are part of your joint property it requires expert knowledge to legally unpick so you end up on the right side of the ledger.

Consultation & Fees

We agree on a set fee for all the work we will do on your case, rather than charge you an hourly rate at the end of the work. The first step is an initial consultation ($775 – GST incl) which is a face-to-face meeting to give us an accurate measure of your legal position and the work needed to be done to settle your divorce quickly.

Here To Help

If you own or have shares in a business or company, own multiple relationship properties, earn a high income and/or have complex family trusts, you will need expert advice on what impact separating will have on your financial situation. If you require urgent assistance, please contact us on 021 369 488.
