It has been widely reported that the UK’s largest divorce settlement was approved by the court today. A consent application was submitted by lawyers for Russian billionaire Boris Berezovsky and his ex-wife Galina.
The court was asked to approve the terms of the settlement and make an order in such terms. Judge Eleanor King said “it does not matter whether the awards are thousands of pounds or hundreds of millions. At the end of the day the husband and wife can reach agreement they can both live with. It bodes much better for their future welfare and for the children of the family and to continue working for the benefit of all of them. It is completely appropriate for me to approve this order and I am happy to do so and my congratulations to all concerned”
Sadly for us divorce lawyers we will not know the exact content of the settlement which I started to consider upon last August in my blog http://bit.ly/pkgU8H
Perhaps the lawyers may have had their phones hacked and the details will be revealed in due course but until then the media will no doubt just have to speculate.
