The larger and more complex a family’s holdings, the more challenges there are to overcome, increasing the potential for litigation. Careful preparation and accounting can help to avoid unnecessary, costly, and time-consuming litigation. All assets must be properly valued and accounted for. While this is no simple task, it is one that Garwood Attorneys have extensive experience in. Our experienced high net worth attorneys work with financial experts as necessary to locate and value the assets and obligations subject to division in the dissolution.

We are also sensitive to the privacy needs and concerns of our high income and asset clients, negotiating non-disclosure agreements where appropriate, and maintaining protocols to ensure your case stays out of the media.
