Vardags is the law firm which pioneered the acceptance of prenups in English law through our landmark win in Radmacher v Granatino. We have helped countless couples take control of their legal future by negotiating enforceable prenuptial and cohabitation agreements.
Many of our highest profile clients have family assets in the billions or in the hundreds or tens of millions. However, if the family assets are greater than £1 million or if you have a family income of greater than £100,000 per annum, then we can generally assist you. Our in-house financial expertise means we are able to engage with issues of hidden assets, valuation, liquidity, deferred remuneration, and options.
Whatever your circumstances, having a top family solicitor on your side can make an enormous difference to your emotional journey and financial outcome.
We cover the full range of cohabitation and prenuptial legal matters. Our clients are typically in one of the following scenarios:
I’m cohabiting with my partner and want to be sure that I’m protected if it all goes wrong.
My partner wants me to sign a cohabitation agreement but I don’t know if it’s fair.
I’m getting married and want to be protected in case it all goes wrong.
I’m getting married and my fiancé(e) wants me to sign a prenuptial agreement.
