Complex asset division in Connecticut divorce
According to Connecticut law, marital assets are subject to equitable distribution. So, the court faces the difficult task of assessing a marriage and arriving at some asset ratio grounded in relative fairness and consideration of statutory factors. Often, among affluent divorcees, much of the property in dispute, such as ongoing and speculative business concerns, trusts, stock options, and family businesses makes for complex valuations. Clients with estates seven-figures or greater need an attorney with vast experience, who has demonstrated an ability to account meticulously and argue persuasively for his clients' benefit. Tom Shanley is this attorney, with 32 years' experience practicing in Greenwich, CT. He understands complex issues and has the ability to find a workable resolution. He not only has the ability to understand the issues, but also can effectively articulate the solution.
