HIGH PROFILE DIVORCE IN NJ

High Net Worth & Celebrity Litigants in Divorce Actions

The Family Law Team has represented many high-profile and prominent divorce clients, including professional athletes, actors, recording artists and very successful entrepreneurs. In representing these clients, it is critically important to protect their privacy rights, particularly their financial circumstances, net worth and their personal lives.


Whenever possible, the parties should utilize alternative dispute resolution (ADR) such as mediation and arbitration both of which are private proceedings. If this cannot be avoided, it is very important that all documents filed with the court (most of which are available to the public), be reviewed by the client’s publicity agent, business lawyers and other advisors and consultants.


Similarly, all statements given to the press or media must be carefully scripted after consultation with the client’s advisors. Since the attorney may meet with the client and advisors at the same time, the attorney/client relationship may be jeopardized if other people are present with the client and the lawyer. Therefore, if sensitive subjects are discussed, the advisors should leave the room to preserve the attorney/client privilege.

NJ High Asset Divorce

While the client may rely on his or her advisors and consultants to provide financial or other factual information about the case, it is best for the lawyer/client relationship to have direct communication and authority from the client to meet the client’s goals and to preserve the privilege. In essence, the lawyer, client and advisors must coordinate their efforts to achieve the client’s goals and preserve the client’s privacy rights.
