Sensitivity to the Legal Issues of High Net Worth Families

Our uniquely focused practice and decades of combined experience in all aspects of New York divorce law ensures that we have the skill and capacity to provide the best service for our clients’ needs. We have significant experience handling high net worth cases, and are skilled at preparing effective prenuptial and postnuptial agreements as well as protecting our clients’ property, assets, and interests upon divorce.

Representing high net worth individuals in complex financial matters requires sophisticated financial understanding and in-depth knowledge of the law. At Berkman Bottger Newman & Schein LLP, we pride ourselves on quality work and achieving positive and highly satisfactory results for our clients. Our skilled New York divorce lawyers are fully committed to offering each of our clients:

  • Personal attention
  • Prompt responses to individual needs and inquiries
  • Thorough and clearly stated explanations of your options
  • Creative solutions to difficult and complex problems
  • An extensive menu of legal processes, including litigation, negotiation, mediation, and collaborative law

Divorce and other family law issues may be particularly fraught with tension, but even divorce does not need to be emotionally devastating. A New York family law attorney from our firm can help individuals navigate complex and delicate matters, always working to minimize stress and strain on families. In certain select situations, mediation or collaborative law may be the right answer to resolve issues to everyone’s advantage and in other situations, there is no choice but to litigate and go to court. With our experience in all three process choices, we can help clients figure out what process is right for them.
