Experienced Representation in High-Net-Worth Divorces

The Experience to Properly Handle Your Family’s Assets

Any divorce is emotional, but divorces involving complex and sophisticated assets can be especially tense. There is a lot at stake. Even one oversight can mean significant tax consequences and considerable money lost. The best course of action is to work with an experienced matrimonial lawyer—someone who has the knowledge and experience necessary to protect your interests and preserve your assets after a divorce.

At Clement Law, Daniel Clement uses his more than 25 years of experience to represent clients in high-net-worth divorces. With offices in New York City and Montclair, NJ, we are able to serve clients throughout New York and New Jersey.

Our firm represents individuals in divorces involving assets such as:

  • Marital homes, vacation and investment properties

  • Investments, including complex stock portfolios
  • High-value collections
  • Closely-held companies or family businesses
  • Money held in offshore accounts or in multiple bank accounts
  • Intellectual property

Hidden Assets and Allegations

In high-net-worth divorces, it is not uncommon for there to be great inequity of financial knowledge and experience. One spouse may have handled all the finances while the other has taken on other marital roles. When it comes time for divorce, the spouse with less financial knowledge is at a clear disadvantage. He or she must not only discover and identify the marital assets, but also ascertain their value to ensure that they’re properly divided.

The other spouse has a legal duty to disclose this information—and to do so accurately. The problem is that this doesn’t always happen. Especially in situations involving spouses who are self-employed or who run family businesses, assets can be underreported.

We have the experience to track down and assess the value of marital property, if the need arises. We team up with skilled investigators, forensic accountants, appraisers and other financial experts to protect your rights.
