High Asset Divorce

Divorce under any circumstances involves emotional and financial risks, and parties to a dissolution of marriage need legal counsel to see that all assets are addressed appropriately.

Is High Asset Divorce Handled Differently?

If your marital estate is large or complex, it is critical that you are represented by a firm with the resources and experience to promote and protect your interests before, during, and after your divorce.

Only when working with a lawyer with the appropriate experience can you be sure that all elements of your estate will be properly characterized; that business shares, retirement benefits, and real estate holdings are accurately valued; and that your divorce settlement agreement addresses the division of shared assets in a way that maximizes the benefits of available tax and investment options.
