Mark Harper and Lucie Alhadeff Withers LLP

Mark Harper and Lucie Alhadeff represented the husband Stuart Crossley in this case.

On 19 December 2007 the Court of Appeal handed down judgment in Crossley v Crossley [2007] EWCA Civ 1491, [2008] FLR (forthcoming). Lord Justice Thorpe addressed the role of pre-nuptial agreements (prenups) under English law and sanctioned an abbreviated procedure to be used in cases where the prenup was likely to be a magnetic factor among the s 25 factors.

In this article, Mark Harper and Lucie Alhadeff evaluate the decision of Crossley and its impact on ancillary relief law and pre-nuptial agreements.
