- LITIGATION SUPPORT SERVICES
“A very involved matrimonial case landed on my desk full of accounts and valuations. I wondered how I was going to deal with the financial details but I knew Watsons provided a litigation support service for solicitors. Ever since that first phone call to them I’ve never hesitated in seeking their professional assistance. In this instance they provided me with a report detailing valuations and tax issues and appeared in court to help settle the inevitable dispute over money. The client was very satisfied with the outcome, which would not have been so favourable had my firm and Watsons not teamed up.”
- Robert Loader, Solicitor
A disputed divorce settlement in which the client was being deprived of a fair share of matrimonial assets, including shares in the family property company.
Whilst the solicitor had the legal issues surrounding the case covered, he needed supporting professional advice from a specialist accountant to contest the business valuations and advise on accounting and tax treatments.
To meet the solicitor and discuss how they could assist in the case after reviewing the financial information provided. This led to further investigative work resulting in a full report to the court on what Watsons considered to be a fair valuation of the business.
The claimant was successful in arguing a fairer valuation of the business, resulting in an improved settlement.
