‘Half’ of Farkhad Akhmedov’s former wife’s £150m divorce sum to go in fees

After almost five years of fighting a high court ruling that awarded the UK’s largest ever divorce payout (£450 million), Russian billionaire Farkhad Akhmedov has reached a settlement with his ex-wife Tatiana and will give her £100 million in cash and about £50 million in artworks. Burford Capital has been paid nearly £75 million, which includes its commission for backing the case and about £40 million in legal fees. More from The Times.
