Two women who say they were misled by their ex-husbands and should get more money in their divorce settlements have won their Supreme Court fight. Alison Sharland and Varsha Gohil say the men hid the true extent of their wealth when the deals were made.

Sandra Davis, Head of Family at Mishcon de Reya, said:

"Today's judgment is undeniably a victory not only for Ms Sharland and Ms Gohil, but for all those asserting their rights to know the truth about their spouse's finances. Having been denied by the Court of Appeal, it is telling that the Supreme Court have today unanimously allowed the appeals. This decision upholds and reinforces the principle of full and frank disclosure and should be seen as a stark warning to all those that would seek to deprive their spouses and the court of it."
