Pre-Nuptial Agreements

Pre-Nuptial AgreementsMelanie Lazarus & Co offer specialist advice on the drafting of pre-nuptial agreements which a couple may wish to enter into prior to marriage.

Until very recently, Great Britain was practically unique in taking a very restrictive view of pre-nuptial agreements compared to other jurisdictions such as America.

However, in October 2010, a Supreme Court ruling acknowledged a Pre Nuptial Agreement as legally binding for the first time in British Law, in the case of Radmacher v Granatino.

The enforcement of the Pre Nuptial Agreement was the first time British Law has ever recognised such a contract as being legally binding.

We consider with clients what they are aiming to achieve in the protection of their assets and we advise on the appropriate model they should use.
