Manhattan Attorney Advising on Distribution of Divorce and Retirement in High-Asset Cases

I am dedicated to protecting my clients' best interests. With the assistance of experts whose specializations depend on the unique circumstances of your case, I offer my experienced guidance in manners that often arise in high-asset divorce, including:

  • Valuation of family-owned or small businesses, partnership interests and stock options, real estate and other property holdings, and personal property such as art, jewelry, vehicles and antiques
  • Division of retirement assets such as pensions, 401(k)s, IRAs and QDROs and international bank accounts and other foreign assets and property
  • Hidden assets

In many cases involving high net worth, it is often best that some such assets and property, such as family-owned businesses or personal property items, are given to one spouse and that the other spouse is compensated for half of the value by maintaining property of off-setting value. This arrangement allows the business or property in question to remain whole and maintain its value. I am particularly adept at finding such creative solutions so that a divorce settlement is effective in meeting my sophisticated client's needs.

To discuss your high-asset divorce, contact me to schedule an appointment. I offer day and evening appointments for the convenience of my clients. I will be accessible throughout your case. I promptly return phone calls and e-mails, even those received outside of normal business hours.
