The ex-wife of a Russian billionaire will go head to head against her own son in the High Court in the latest round of her acrimonious divorce battle.

Tatiana Akhmedov and her 26-year-old son Temur will be on opposing sides of the court as the Britain's biggest ever divorce takes a new twist.

Tatiana - Litigation - Finance - Firm - Burford

Tatiana,52, is using a litigation finance firm called Burford Capital to bankroll her multiple court hearings with the legal bill for the couple running into the tens of millions.

Lawyers for Burford Capital are seeking to get Temur added to the High Court battle and if successful could go after his assets which include a London home.
