High Asset Divorce
Business Ownership, Assets, or Professional Practice
Many times, wealth is directly related to a business, business interests, or other assets that must be valued. Our firm frequently works with experts who can accurately determine this value. A winning case in many instances comes down to a battle of expert opinions. We carefully select and work with these experts to present a strong case and weaken the opposing experts opinions.
We utilize forensic research and expert tracing techniques in order to accurately determine the parties’ financial holdings and history. In addition to accurately determining the extent of the property, we determine the character of the property (whether it is community or separate property).
Legal, Financing, Accounting and Tax Issues
A lawyer in a high net worth divorce case must be able to detect a wide range of legal, finance, accounting and tax related issues. Issues like these often play a significant role in business entities, real estate, high value collections, benefit plans and other tangible and intangible property. At our firm, we manage the best team of experts to prepare and present such cases.
Some parties in high net worth divorce cases may have assets or investments that are owned or located in another state or country. In these matters, your lawyer must be completely aware of the scenarios surrounding tax implications, alternative property and debt distribution in order to arrive at a favorable outcome.
Significant financial spousal maintenance is often a major issue to be negotiated or litigated.
Seeking Efficient Resolutions for Clients
Bryan has litigated all family law issues including divorce, paternity, parenting time, child support, spousal maintenance, and relocation. Bryan has found that one of the most important steps in representing a client is to take the time to listen to what they have to say. Bryan believes that when you take the time to truly listen to what the client needs and what is most important to them, you can often reach a resolution that relieves the emotional and economic burden of family law matters.
