The purpose of our commercial family law section is to keep our professional financial colleagues well informed and up to date in key areas where separation can have substantial financial implications for their clients.
Commercial Family Law is the impact and importance that Family Law has in many commercial and financial areas in the accountancy, financial planning and legal environments.
Understanding Separation & Family Law from a Commercial Perspective
At Hartley Healy we specialise only in family law and over the years we have discovered there are many areas of financial practice and law that are impacted on by the separation of spouses. We are not specialists in tax or Estate planning, nor are we specialist financial advisors or accountants. However, as specialist family lawyers, it is important that we know something about all of the areas that potentially affect our clients when delivering family law advice.
Likewise, we have come to understand that it is equally important for our colleagues to also have some knowledge of the impact that family law has upon their area of practice so they can improve their own services and advices to clients.
We aim to assist our colleagues and clients in recognising the potential traps and problem areas that may arise upon separation. Our commercial family law initiative therefore provides educational tools to enable our colleagues to properly advise and educate their clients about the impact of family law in various different financial areas.
Further, we conduct seminars from time to time on relevant issues concerning commercial family law.
