The term “high net worth” or “high asset” generally refers to an individual with substantial financial assets. High asset divorce cases are often more contentious and complex. In most high profile divorce cases the parties wish to maintain as much privacy as possible, especially in high conflict, celebrity cases.
High-profile, high net worth and celebrity clients have unique concerns when it comes to divorce and other contested disputes. When the financial stakes are high, the legal issues tend to be significantly more complex.
Unlike a typical divorce, high value cases involving substantial financial assets require a special skill set and level of experience. When divorcing individuals have a high net worth or a substantial marital estate, the division of the marital estate can become complicated and contentious, with vigorous disputes arising frequently. It’s not uncommon for these high net worth individuals to have marital estates that include real estate holdings, business interests, complex trusts, investments, retirement accounts and international assets. The addition of these types of assets can severely complicate divorce proceedings involving individuals with high net worth, making an equitable division of marital assets challenging.
