Ex-wife of Dale Vince can make post-divorce claim

Who? Miles Geffin, legal director in the family department at Mishcon de Reya.

Why is he in the news? Acting for Kathleen Wyatt, who is seeking £1.9m from her ex-husband, Dale Vince, a one-time new age traveller who later founded and runs the green energy company Ecotricity. He is now reportedly worth £57m.

The marriage broke down more than 30 years ago, and they were divorced in 1992. Wyatt brought up their son and has few assets.

Five justices of the Supreme Court – the deputy president Lady Hale, Lord Clarke, Lord Wilson, Lord Hughes and Lord Hodge – reached a unanimous decision, deciding the family court could not strike out Wyatt’s claim without a full consideration of the issues.
