Private equity asset sharing on divorce

  • June 20, 2013
  • By Hunters Law

In what is believed to be the first reported divorce case involving the sharing of future interests in private equity funds, Richard Kershaw and Anna Roiser acted for the successful wife.

These were complex, high value divorce proceedings in the High Court, the Judgment of which has just been published on BAILII.

The case involved the Court’s consideration of the extent to which assets with their roots established during a long marriage should be shared post-separation.

Accepting our client’s arguments, the Court ordered that all of the assets as at the date of Trial should be shared equally and awarded our client an ongoing share of the husband’s future carried interest entitlement.
