Charman appeal

Date:1 MAR 2007

On 6 March 2007 the Court of Appeal is due to hear the husband's appeal in Charman v Charman [2006] EWHC 1879 (Fam), [2006] Fam Law 1019. Following a long marriage, in which both parties started with nothing and in which both played their full part, wholly exceptionally, the wealth created was of extraordinary proportions from extraordinary talent and energy. Taking everything properly into account, Coleman J awarded the wife about 48 million, just under 37% of the total wealth. For the full news story see April [2007] Fam Law.
