Our client was served with high-value Court of Session divorce proceedings with financial claims including claims relating to business interests, in the context of which an attempt was made by the Pursuer to pierce the corporate veil of a limited company; it was maintained by the Pursuer that this was a resource available to our client to meet a significant capital claim. The action was successfully defended. As well as various complex lines of argument for the Defender that was presented in terms of sections 9 and 10 of the 1985 Act, we adeptly addressed attempts to pierce the corporate veil, and as a result, no capital payment was awarded to the Pursuer on divorce.
