One of the greats of the family bar, Lewis Marks deals predominantly with cases surrounding the valuation and liquidation of assets in divorce proceedings. It’s an area which has been in constant flux since White v White (2000), the landmark case in which the courts were instructed to assume an equal division of matrimonial assets on divorce. ‘There’s too much of a strong tendency to think cash is the answer,’ says Marks. ‘How do you divide up a business which employs lots of people and give one party their share in cash? The answer is you can’t without destroying the business. The courts need to catch up, and a move away from cash is the next step.’ One peer says of Marks: ‘He is, quite simply, the best money QC.’
