There’s no such thing as an “ordinary” divorce. That being said, it’s fair to call some divorces extraordinary—for the extraordinary legal guidance they require.
Imagine that you and your spouse have been together for 25 years. Together during that time, you’ve built a business, amassed a multimillion-dollar fortune, and invested in over a dozen ventures. That’s not all—you and your spouse have three homes, seven cars, a boat, pets, an extensive art collection, several pieces of one-of-a-kind furniture… The list goes on.
Now, after one too many disagreements, you’ve both decided it’s best to move on and go your separate ways.
Where will all those assets go?
Who owns the business? Who controls the investments?
Who gets the homes, the cars, the boat, the art, the pets?
To determine the answers, you’ll need an uncommonly skilled and experienced legal partner. Many family lawyers lack the knowledge necessary to handle property negotiations and settlements of the size we’re discussing.
Keep in mind that asset division is just one piece of the puzzle. In a situation this complex, there may be myriad tax, insurance, and estate matters to consider. Add children into the mix and you could be dealing with custody arrangements, family business succession plans, wills, trusts, and a whole lot more.
At Offit Kurman, we’re able to effectively assist clients with issues like these due to our firm’s unique operational structure and our highly distinguished team. Offit Kurman’s Family Law Practice Group includes multiple American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML), International Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (IAML) Fellows, Super Lawyers honorees, and attorneys named to lists of The Best Lawyers in America. Additionally, we regularly collaborate with our colleagues active in other Offit Kurman Practice Groups, such as Business Law, Education Law, and Estates and Trusts.
