High Net Worth Divorces

Massachusetts Divorce Involving Complex Assets

Divorce between parties with significant wealth is complicated. In such cases, it is critical to work with an attorney who understands how to preserve your assets. Attorney Elaine Gordon has years of experience handling family law cases involving real estate, closely held businesses and other substantial property.

Using specialists to identify and value property

It is important for both parties to discover all assets and income in order to construct an acceptable property settlement. This sometimes requires investigators, appraisers and forensic accountants, all of whom can be helpful in identifying and valuing property during a divorce. These experts are particularly helpful when funds are hidden or disguised. Attorney Gordon consults with specialists such as these in order to develop an accurate accounting and valuation of property during a high-asset divorce.

Examples of property often involved in divorces with substantial assets

The office represents people on both sides of the marital property division issue. Whatever side they are on, clients are encouraged to seek their maximum property rights through trial or negotiation. Attorney Gordon's cases have turned on property issues involving:

  • Homes and vacation properties
  • Boats and vehicles
  • 401(k)s and other retirement accounts
  • Securities accounts
  • Stock options
  • Business interests
  • Real estate trusts and limited partnership interests
  • Valuables such as antiques, jewelry and art
  • Premarital property
  • Inheritances
  • Trusts
