Tatiana Akhmedova, the ex-wife of Russian billionaire Farkhad Akhmedov, has won a High Court lawsuit against their son, whom she accused of helping his father avoid paying her a £450m award.
This case is noted as one of the largest and most bitter divorce cases to go through the English courts.
Partner and Head of the Family department, Henry Hood, commented:
“In the latest round of the Akhmedova divorce litigation, the High Court has continued to find in Tatiana’s favour with Knowles J finding for her against her son just as Haddon-Cave J (as he then was) had found for her against her husband. She has not had such luck against her husband in jurisdictions where his assets were actually situated, particularly in Dubai, and to this point the only asset she has got her hands on has been a helicopter, the value of which to her proceedings must now be very stretched.
“However, things may now be different if her son has significant assets, particularly land, available for enforcement in this jurisdiction. It appears that he has had in the past. This may be a game-changer for her.”
