Founded by University of Cambridge alumna, Ayesha Vardag, known widely as “Britain’s top divorce lawyer”, our Cambridge office offers the quality of a top city law firm with the convenience of a local address.
Together, the ‘very knowledgeable’ team form Cambridge’s leading divorce and family lawyers, ranked as Tier 1 in the Legal 500. Headed by the ‘incredible’ Leading Individual Silvia Devecchi, and featuring key lawyer Ciara Delaney, they are frequently applauded for an ‘exceptional...professional’ approach to cases, involving ‘pragmatism’ and ‘swift emotional and practical support’.
Many of our divorce cases involve complex assets, including trusts and/or international assets. But we also deal with straightforward uncontested divorce cases and our team of top divorce lawyers always seek to negotiate at the earliest possible opportunity.
The majority of our clients are high net worth individuals with family assets of over £1m or a gross annual family income in excess of £150,000.
Vardags is unique in having an in-house forensic financial arm which works as an integral part of our team to get the best results for our clients. If you are the breadwinner, our financial expertise will help you to produce realistic valuations of assets, particularly private company shareholdings. We can ensure that issues of liquidity are at the forefront of any negotiations and emphasise your critical role in maintaining the value of the business. If you are the homemaker you may be worried that your spouse will not disclose all assets or will value them at far too low a level. Our team of top divorce solicitors are experts in non-disclosure for divorce cases and our in-house forensic financial team are experts in valuations. You may also be worried about how you will pay your day-to-day living expenses or legal fees— our lawyers can often assist you with having your spouse pay these or securing a litigation loan.
