Commercial family law is one of the things that sets Hartley Healy Family Lawyers apart from other family lawyers. It involves our ability to deal with property settlement and financial cases (from the easiest and most complex) in an expert and commercial manner.
Not only do we have the expertise to handle large litigation and very complex matters, but also in relation to everyday property settlements, we are able to find commercial solutions quickly and easily for our clients and thus, help then move on quickly with their lives in a commercial manner.
Too many family lawyers say they are experts in property settlement, but do not have the history and proof to back up their claims. We do!
We are referred work from some of the leading commercial lawyers and Q.C’s in Australia. We have handled matters involving complex financial pools, ranging in value from $10M up to $300M.
Our team can read financial statements and understand them. We can draft Corporate Diagrams, interpret them using our own skills and expertise. We are not your everyday run-of-the-mill property settlement family lawyers. We do not work within a large corporate firm and we maintain our independence and boutique operation.
If you need a smart family lawyer to protect your property interest in your separation or if you have a complex matter but little knowledge about your spouse’s financial empire, then we are the best lawyers to look after your interests and obtain you a fair and equitable property settlement.
