Divorces in which spouses have a high net worth are often highly contentious. We have solutions.

Property division in a high net worth divorce.

It is necessary to determine what property is owned jointly and what property is owned individually by each spouse. This can be a difficult task, especially if separate property has commingled with community property.

If a business is owned individually or by both spouses, it is necessary to determine the value of the business and each spouse’s share of it. If you are the owner of a business or a professional practice, we will work to limit your financial exposure and protect your business assets. We exercise discretion in high net worth divorce and can prevent access to your families personal information by the media.
