Family court cases involving significant wealth always attract significant interest. But the case of Russian oligarch Vladimir Potanin and his now-former wife, Natalia Potanina has raised the stakes even further: Ms Potanina is said to have applied to the High Court in London to determine her financial claims after moving to the UK in 2016.

Hannah Minty appears in Spear's magazine commenting: "There is the potential for significant legal costs to be incurred on both sides of the Potanin/Potania divorce"

The £15bn divorce, legals costs and the state of UK family law is available to read on the Spear's website.
