Hackett sues over pre-nup
Grant Hackett launches a Supreme Court legal action against his former solicitors, accusing them of botching his pre-nuptial agreement.
According to court documents, Hackett employed Mullins Lawyers on retainer between 2006 and 2009.
He allegedly asked the firm to draft a financial agreement - Australia's version of a pre-nuptial agreement - less than a month before his 2007 wedding to pop star Candice Alley, the report said.
The statement of claim alleges the financial agreement was drafted in a way that did not comply with legal requirements and the lawyers didn't take the opportunity to fix the problem when changes were made to the agreement in 2009.
The former swimming champion is also accusing the firm of failing to tell him there was any "defect".
"As a result of the breaches ... the plaintiff has suffered loss including legal costs," according to court documents quoted in the report.
"The plaintiff's loss is continuing."
The couple wed in 2007 and have two children together, twins Jagger and Charlize.
They separated in May after the gold medallist trashed their Melbourne city apartment, upending a piano and smashing furniture in a drunken rage.
Hackett works at Westpac and with Channel Nine.
