Our firm is experienced at handling complex high-asset divorces and working with appraisers, accountants and other financial professionals. However, we are also sensitive to the economic concerns of the middle-class client and work to manage costs and streamline the process of divorce as much as possible.
Divorce can be very stressful and highly emotional — even if you understand New York’s divorce laws and know exactly what to expect at each stage of the process. At Strauss & Kallus, we make this process easier by providing our clients honest answers to questions and clear explanations of the law. We have an objective perspective on the issues and possible approaches that can resolve differences, minimize damage and respect the dignity of all concerned. We understand that every divorce is different so we try to achieve the right legal solution to each unique situation. Our success is a direct reflection of our commitment to listening and to giving clients a meaningful voice throughout the process.
In many cases, we are able to resolve difficult divorce issues such as child custody or property division through negotiation or the dispute resolution approaches of mediation and collaborative law. However, if results cannot be achieved through these methods in your case, you can rely on our years of courtroom experience to effectively protect your interests in trial as well.
High Asset and Complex Divorce
Dividing property in high asset and complex divorce matters is not a simple process. It requires accurately identifying and assessing the clients’ property and a thorough analysis of the rights of each of the respective parties and a thorough understanding of the clients’ long term needs and goals. Strauss & Kallus have in depth knowledge of the significant issues including executive compensation and benefits, pensions and qualified domestic relations orders, business valuation, and real estate. We also recognize the importance of considering ancillary issues such as tax consequences, bankruptcy and estate planning and will refer to outside counsel when necessary
