Commentary by Nick Manners, a specialist divorce lawyer and partner in the Family department at Payne Hicks Beach, on the most fought-over assets in super-rich divorces. Nick comments that jewellery, watches, cars, boats and art can all become relevant in a divorce, and with properties and assets all over the world the value of the case can run into millions of pounds. Increasingly, these type of assets are making a big difference on the balance sheet in terms what each party gets to keep.
