In an unrelated divorce case Susan Crossley, who was being represented by Raymond Tooth of Sears Tooth, yesterday dropped her claim to her ex-husband Stuart Crossley’s multi-million pound fortune (www.thelawyer.com, 14 February).
She had claimed that by failing to disclose his entire wealth when they signed a pre-nuptial agreement, Mr Crossley had compromised the validity of that agreement. Mr Crossley’s lawyer, Mark Harper of Withers, disputed the claim.
Her withdrawal from the case was seen as victory for the legal standing of pre-nuptial agreements in the UK.
