Abstract

In Thorne v Kennedy, the High Court unanimously set aside two ‘binding financial agreements’ (one prenuptial and the other postnuptial) in circumstances where there was a vast inequality of bargaining power between the two parties to the agreement, and the terms were very disadvantageous to the weaker party.
