When dissolving a relationship between partners with significant assets, it is wise to work with a legal team who understands the complex financial arrangements, tax implications, valuation issues, and other matters involved. You also need a legal representative skilled at handling informal negotiations as well as strategic management of all phases of divorce litigation.

At Batley Family Law, we have the knowledge and experience to navigate through complex legal and financial situations to achieve an outcome that puts our clients in control of their future. While financial calculations are important, however, we are hyper aware that the emotional side of the equation deserve primary consideration throughout the process.



Allocating assets between divorcing spouses can require serious finesse even in simple circumstances. When a couple owns substantial assets and have reached an advanced career stage, many additional factors come into play that require certain wisdom to manage in a client’s best interests.

Complexities can include:

  • Stock options and restricted stock units
  • Interests in closely-held companies
  • Trusts
  • Golden parachute plans
  • Commercial real estate or rental property
  • Rare assets and collections
  • Executive compensation and benefit plans
  • Hidden assets

Best results often require a team approach. We frequently work with forensic accountants, appraisers, beneficiaries, and valuation experts to create a clear picture of the true value of property and develop the right plan to divide liabilities as well as assets.


If both partners can cooperate in sharing full and complete information and are able to compromise to reach an accord, it is absolutely possible to resolve divorce proceedings without litigation. However, just one area of conflict can jeopardize that potential, so it is wise to be prepared. Our experienced divorce team will cover all the bases, working to resolve outstanding issues with the greatest efficiency but ready to fight to achieve important objectives if necessary.

The mediation process often provides an effective means of resolving conflict and helping couples reach an agreement in private and out of court. Our attorneys have extensive experience successfully guiding couples through mediation to settle issues without litigation.


During the challenges of divorce, you need to work with divorce attorneys you can trust to protect your interests and keep your goals at the forefront. At Batley Family Law, we combine our talents and experience to provide the right representation for high-net worth clients with complex assets.
