Gall Co-Hosts Family Law Webinar with AlixPartners on 29th April

The division of finances and assets of parties can be one of the most stressful, emotional and daunting parts of a divorce. The pandemic has further complicated the financial aspects of divorce proceedings due to the dynamic economic environment.

In some matrimonial disputes, family lawyers find it beneficial to engage forensic accountants who can help provide the court with a clearer picture of the parties’ financial positions, especially during these unusual times.

Join Kajal Aswani and Chantelle Woo from boutique dispute resolution firm Gall, and Edward Boyle and Selena Tsang from global consulting firm AlixPartners in this informative webinar to learn more about how to manage financial disclosure in a divorce.

We will explore:

  • The requirement of full and frank disclosure of each party’s assets and what this entails;
  • What is the Form E and what parties should be mindful of;
  • Division of assets – are they mostly awarded on a 50/50 split? What factors may influence this split?
  • Issues parties face when dealing with disclosure of assets;
  • What to do if there has been a dissipation of assets by a party to the marriage;
  • Tracing assets in both onshore and offshore jurisdictions where disclosure is suspected of being incomplete.
