W.H. v. I.R., 2012 BCSC 1483
Counsel in an important family law proceeding arising out of the breakdown of a six-year marriage.
Friday, 5 October 2012
On October 5, 2012, the British Columbia Supreme Court ruled in favour of a Davis client in an important family law case. The court ruled that the premarital agreement which provided for payment of approximately $1 million was unfair and set it aside. It ruled that the client was entitled to a percentage of the husband's business assets in addition to the more traditional family assets. The court awarded the respondent over $4 million in respect of the assets plus additional amounts for spousal and child support.
Davis LLP's Dale Sanderson, Q.C. and Grace Choi were counsel in this case.
