Complex Financial Holdings Unfairly Valued
Our client, Husband, is a high-level executive at an international corporation who receives multiple forms of compensation, from multiple countries, creating a complex matter for divorce proceedings. Shaw Law Firm PC was retained as the second attorney, after the first failed to reach settlement. Husband committed adultery during a long-term marriage in which Wife had deferred her career to Husband’s career in order to raise their now college-age child. Wife was demanding $5 million in stock options and other assets, along with close to $1 million in alimony. Wife’s attorney and a financial expert were greatly inflating the value of stock options and other assets. The key in this case was to be very precise and simplify the complexity of all these assets.
Case Result: Wife was awarded just 1/10th of what she had demanded in stock options and only three years of alimony.

Family Business Valuation Key to Case
Wife retained Shaw Law Firm PC after a failed attempt by another attorney. Wife had inherited a family business from her parents. Husband had worked as the President of the business for 20 years and was demanding an enormous settlement for his interest in the business. We brought in the a top business valuation specialist and witnesses who could show the husband’s poor management of the business and drug use contributed to the lack of value in the business.
Case Result: Husband was awarded only $25,000 for his 20 years of service to the business. We calculated the after-inflation appreciation of the business, arguing that the remainder of the business value was premarital property. Wife saved her family business and continues to thrive. She also was awarded full custody of her children.
