Tracing hidden assets

Hidden assets are an increasingly common issue in divorce cases, including those involving business owners.

A 2012 survey of more than 130 leading family lawyers in the UK, exploring their work in the previous year, revealed that 80 per cent of respondents had worked on cases involving concealed assets.

And although almost a third (29 per cent) said they were aware of hidden assets, they were also unable to rely on any documents that had been obtained.

In these circumstances, the expertise of forensic accounting specialists, like those at Milsted Langdon in Bath, Bristol, London, Taunton and Yeovil is crucial.

By gathering and analysing financial information, we can track down hidden assets or those that have not been fully disclosed, including through the blurring of the distinction between personal and company assets or moving assets offshore.

As well as reviewing personal and company financial data, we can track down accounts, investments or property owned by your partner that you were unaware of and investigate unexplained transactions or changes in spending activity, which can indicate attempts to conceal assets.
