The case of Sekhri v Ray  EWHC 2290 (Fam) is a stark reminder of the way in which litigation costs in the matrimonial arena can spiral out of control. As usual Justice Holman pulls no punches in his judgment.
Mr Ray and Ms Sekhri met in their mid-thirties via an online dating agency in December 2008. Mr Ray is a successful partner in a highly regarded American law firm. Ms Sekhri is a paediatric anaesthetist, working at Great Ormond Street Hospital.
