What Is A High-Asset Divorce?

High-asset divorce cases often include a combination of the following; multiple bank accounts, stock portfolios, businesses, and real properties, both in the couple's home jurisdiction or elsewhere. Many times these cases include real properties that have fluctuating values, or perhaps include partial ownership in real properties.

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

Business Evaluations and Settlements

Many of these cases also involve the valuation of a business or other entity which may hold assets of value to the marital partnership. It is also important to understand the impact of a divorce on your estate and business succession planning—and to evaluate your options for asset protection and tax avoidance. Gevurtz Menashe divorce and estate planning attorneys work together with a strong team of professionals including CPAs, forensic accountants, business evaluators (both local and national), and commercial and residential real estate appraisers, and others. There may also be tax implications involved when litigating or settling high-asset cases, and we will consult with business attorneys, tax attorneys and accountants in helping to structure a settlement or trial position that is most advantageous to our clients and their families. A high asset settlement might include items such as:
  • Corporate holdings including stocks, options, and real estate
  • Equity accounts
  • Bonds
  • Art collections
  • Automobiles
  • Retirement Accounts
  • Businesses or properties
