Radmacher v Granatino

Radmacher v Granatino transformed the way English courts regard prenuptial agreements. In 2010, Vardags represented Katrin Radmacher in a case that culminated in a landmark ruling at the Supreme Court, changing to the law to make prenuptial agreements enforceable in England and Wales.

The case concerned a German heiress and her French husband, a banker. The parties married in London 1998, having signed a prenuptial agreement in Germany which agreed that neither party would benefit from the others property on divorce. During divorce proceedings, Ms Radmacher appealed the judges decision not to give the prenup decisive weight and was successful. The Supreme Court, in a judgment encouraging adult autonomy, ruled that fair prenups should have magnetic importance.
