Our Service

If you or your child are a victim of domestic abuse, whether physical, emotional or financial, or you are concerned for your safety, or the safety of your children, we can take fast and effective legal steps to protect you.

We have also been successful in representing those against whom allegations of domestic abuse have been made. If someone has made allegations of abuse against you, we have the expertise to advise you and represent you through proceedings.

Our family solicitors can assist with applications for non-molestation orders and occupation orders to protect someone from violence, harassment or threats. The person applying for a non-molestation order and occupation order must be associated with the other person and we can advise in respect of this.  

We have extensive experience in dealing with complex and urgent private children law cases.

Unfortunately, we do not undertake public funding (legal aid) work.

Financial Injunctions

Often, immediate action is the only effective response to protect your financial interest.

If you are concerned that your spouse may be attempting to dissipate assets to defeat a claim that you may have for a financial order the court has powers to prevent this or to grant an add-back.

Emergency financial applications can include:

  • Interim maintenance to assist the client to meet their immediate financial needs pending the conclusion of the proceedings;
  • Taking urgent steps to ascertain and locate assets;
  • Applying for orders to freeze assets or prevent sale or removal of assets;
  • Applying for search orders to preserve property or evidence;
  • Applying for legal services orders for payment of legal fees to fund litigation;
  • Enforcement of financial orders.

Our Experience

We regularly act for or against those with complex financial backgrounds. We have a proven track record of acting swiftly to protect your financial interests. Our family solicitors can support on a range of issues even if there are interlinked.

Case Example 1

In this case, our family solicitors were acting on behalf of the wife in relation to divorce. This also involved contested children and financial remedy proceedings. Our experienced solicitors supported and executed applications for interim maintenance, a legal services order, and injunction applications to prevent the disposal of assets.

Case Example 2

In this example, Myerson family law solicitors worked closely with our internal corporate & commercial property team. Both teams of solicitors worked together to locate a substantial commercial property portfolio disposed of by the husband to third parties and into offshore companies.

The husband was evasive in his financial disclosure and took steps during the litigation to dispose of properties to a related third party. The case settled at FDR with the wife securing a settlement three times more than the husband's initial offer.

Case Example 3

On this occasion, Myerson Solicitors was acting for the wife who was joint owner of a large property development portfolio. This case involved contested financial remedy proceedings in the High Court worth £25 million.

The husband sought to dispose of properties during litigation and failed initially to engage in negotiations. Our experienced family law solicitors obtained a freezing order against the husband's bank account to preserve the net proceeds of sale containing several millions of pounds and to secure a legal services order in the wife's favour.

The husband acted as a litigant in person and breached several orders for disclosure which resulted in Myerson family solicitors applying for the husband's committal to prison. At the conclusion for trial hearing, the wife was awarded a multi-million-pound settlement.

Why Choose Myerson
