WM v HM

Divorce – Financial provision. The Family Court made an award of over £72m to the wife, following divorce proceedings. The award represented half of the product of the matrimonial partnership after the court rejected the husband's contention that there ought to be an unequal division of the same. Whilst making £145m over the course of a long marriage was a highly credible achievement, the present case was not one of those rare cases that justified an unequal division of the product of the matrimonial partnership.
