Michael Gouriet is one of family law’s earliest advocates for greater protection of unmarried couples. He is also an expert in complex multi-jurisdictional work and financial matters, recently reaching a successful settlement for a Middle Eastern UHNW involving more than £1 billion in assets, and another for an unmarried HNW, hinging on the interest across a glittering array of properties. What surprises his clients most, he says, is that bad behaviour isn’t taken into account when the millions are divvied up: ‘Some people feel really taken aback by the way they have been treated or their spouse has behaved, and yet it has absolutely no bearing on the financial outcome.’
