We have considerable experience litigating, arbitrating, and mediating high-asset divorce cases, representing individuals who are:

  • Executives

  • Real Estate Owners and Developers
  • Those who have acquired wealth through inheritance, settlements, etc.

What Is a High-Asset Divorce?

There is no set definition, but we find that individuals who earn more than $200,000 per year or have assets exceeding $1 million are generally considered to have more complexity in their case due to this higher net wealth. 

High-net-worth divorces often include a combination of assets that present more complex issues. Many times these assets are in a variety of jurisdictions, fluctuate in value, have complex tax issues, or have a complicated ownership structure.

For example, the asset pool that a divorcing couple needs to split could include:
  • Bank accounts
  • Stocks, bonds, and other investments
  • Retirement accounts and pensions
  • Businesses and corporate holdings
  • Multiple homes
  • Income properties
  • Automobiles
  • Real properties
  • Jewelry, artwork, or other valuables

When the asset pool is this complex, the fate of everyone involved — including the children — can hang in the balance. It requires great experience and skill to determine accurate values for the entire asset portfolio. With so much at stake on a personal and financial level, it’s worth hiring an attorney who’s experienced with the division of property in high-asset cases.


Business & Tax Considerations for High-Asset Financials Divorces

Many high-value divorce cases involve the valuation of a business. There may also be tax implications involved when litigating or settling high-asset cases. Therefore, it’s important to understand the overall impact of divorce on your business succession and estate planning — and to evaluate your options for asset protection and tax avoidance.
