Help from a Complex Asset Division Attorney in Hartford, CT

Dealing with the equitable distribution of marital assets owned by high net worth couples in Connecticut

At Carlo Forzani LLC, we have more than 37 years of experience representing the interests of high net worth clients facing divorce. We understand that when assets of significant value are at stake, every detail is important throughout the estate’s inventory, valuation and division, and as such, we draw upon our own extensive financial background and upon analysis from trusted and qualified experts when we approach this complex process.

Valuating and allocating complex assets

For clients going through divorce, we offer comprehensive property division attorney services, beginning first and foremost with inventorying and appraising all marital assets. We have particular experience dealing with complex and high-value items, including the following:

  • Business interests
  • Executive compensation packages
  • Investments
  • Stock options and portfolios
  • Trusts
  • Retirement accounts, including pensions, 401(k)s and IRAs
  • Debts
  • The marital home, vacation residences, rental properties and other real estate

Jointly owned business ventures are often among the most difficult assets to appraise and divide. This is because the value of a business is often different from the amount of cash it has on hand at a given time, and furthermore, its current value does not necessarily reflect its future value. In fact, the future worth of a business is so dependent upon outside economic factors that any estimates are highly speculative. Fortunately for our clients, our business valuation lawyer has developed an extensive network of skilled and reliable financial analysts, business appraisers, CPAs, forensic accountants and other experts whom we rely on to help us facilitate a fair and accurate division of business assets and business debt division.

Guarding your financial interests and ensuring you receive your fair share

Even in complex divorce cases, Connecticut is an equitable distribution state, meaning that estates are divided fairly in regards to a number of factors, including the length of the marriage, cause for divorce and terms of a premarital agreement — but not necessarily evenly. This means that such circumstances as domestic abuse, adultery, abandonment and other cruel treatment during a marriage can affect what each spouse is entitled to in a divorce judgment. Our asset division lawyer understands how to protect your financial future while taking such factors into account.
