Experienced Attorneys For Your Complex Divorce Concerns

Business executives and owners typically have employment benefits that go beyond the standard health care and savings plans. They may have a portion of ownership in the firm or its subsidiaries, have deferred compensation plans, or pension funds geared toward creating wealth for many years.

These benefits and elevated levels of pay are given special consideration when getting divorced, as the executive's former spouse may be entitled to a significant portion of those assets now and in the future.

Our lawyers are well-equipped to deal with issues of valuing a business, alternative investments, trusts and property that are distinctly different from the primary family home. We help our clients consider what is fair and reasonable in these cases, as well as the California and federal tax issues many people tend to overlook.
