Valuing Your Assets
Dividing the assets of a high net-worth estate is a complex process. One of the most crucial steps is the valuation of the couple’s personal and real property, as well as their financial assets. Some estates include unique assets such as oil and gas rights, livestock, breeding rights or business holdings. In these cases, your attorney must understand how to value these types of assets.
We work with financial experts, as well as any other experts necessary to your case. That may be a geologist, vet, financial analyst, engineer, art or jewelry appraiser, real estate appraiser or business valuation expert. In addition, we will help you consider the tax consequences of each asset and how its division will affect your tax liability.
