Thank you for your question.Your lawyers ought to have taken steps to get a disclosure of your husband's assets. The usual way of doing this is to apply to the court to have a commissioner appointed to investigate and examine your husband and relevant documents. Once this step is completed and the documents recovered there should have been a valuation of his companies by a forensic accountant and a report produced for them to produce to the court.This is standard practice where one party to a divorce has a business the value of which is relevant for the purpose of calculating matrimonial property. If these things were not done and as a result you have suffered loss you may wish to consider consulting a new solicitor with a view to considering whether your solicitors were negligent. If they were you can claim damages for your losses.This is a separate and different procedure from your SLCC complaint.I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
