Top Recommended Family Lawyers
Dealing with the almost invariably knotty commercial and financial elements of HNW divorces is ‘part and parcel’ of Sam Longworth’s work. ‘You could not write the script of your next case – that’s what keeps you interested and on your toes as a divorce lawyer,’ he says. Longworth’s clients often hail from the City, entertainment and sporting worlds. While skilled at litigation – there was a multijurisdictional forum-shopping dispute in the Court of Appeal earlier this year – he remains a committed advocate of arbitration. ‘Many families are deciding they need to do anything but go to court,’ he says, emphasising that this is as much to do with privacy concerns as it is about cost.
