Family law takes into account changes in personal circumstances, but it goes much further than that.
From a legal point of view, family law is a cross-disciplinary issue that permeates many other branches of law, including company law, property law and taxation.
In addition, families are becoming more international, with living abroad ever more commonplace – hence the importance of being aware of the right governing law, especially with regard to matrimonial regime, parental authority, the consequences of marriage, divorce and even inheritance.
It is often important to act early, by properly employing international mechanisms, to anticipate any difficulties a family will have to confront in the event of divorce of death. This is why we advise our clients to take the best decisions for both themselves and those they wish to protect.
To do so, we have chosen to adopt a multidisciplinary approach, working closely with other professionals such as solicitors, chartered accountants, tax specialists and wealth management consultants. This means we can offer a broad-based approach that can be adapted to specific situations.
Our practice also acts in crisis situations, in the event of separation, divorce or death. We seek to solve disputes through conciliation rather than litigation. In addition, the new form of divorce by mutual consent makes it possible to adapt even better to the interests of each party.
In the event parties fail to reach an agreement, our lawyers can act before the courts on all matters concerning family and family wealth.
