TORONTO, ON (Sept. 21, 2015) — The new issue of Family Lawyer Magazine has a special focus on high-stakes divorce, including interviews with and advice from prominent family lawyers and financial professionals who concentrate on high-asset and/or high-conflict divorce cases.
At some point in their careers, most lawyers dream of landing a case that will set precedents, attract peer or media attention, make their reputation, or make them a lot of money. Some family lawyers will spend months or years seeking the one case that will accomplish all four goals – but a lawyer who has had one or more such cases might offer their colleagues these words of caution: “Be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it.”
High-stakes cases are not a good fit for every family lawyer or financial divorce professional; the rewards may be greater, but the risks and challenges are also greater.
In this issue, the magazine’s editors asked six prominent family law attorneys with extensive experience in high-stakes divorce cases to share some of their best advice about what it takes to land and successfully represent these kinds of clients (see “High-Stakes Divorce: Q&A with Leading Attorneys”). Since each of these lawyers could probably write a book on the topic, the full interviews for this article are available as podcasts here.
This issue of Family Lawyer Magazine also offers an insider’s view of “Hamm v. Hamm: the ‘King Kong’ of Divorce Cases”, which discusses Harold Hamm’s role in the growth of Continental Resources. Other high-stakes articles include:
- “The Gentleman Advocates: Bernard Rinella and Donald Schiller”
- “3 Valuation Issues in High-Stakes Divorce”
- “Mediation vs. Litigation for High-Conflict Divorce”
And because there’s more to a family law practice than high-stakes divorce, this issues offers advice to help lawyers stop pouring their marketing money down the drain and start looking into the most effective ways to market their practice; read “15 Signs You Are Throwing Your Marketing Money Away” for some great tips you can use today to grow your practice tomorrow.
