Our client represented the wife in a complex divorce proceeding. Husband and wife had co-owned and sold an early stage company during their marriage for approximately $8M dollars. At the time divorce was filed, the marital estate was estimated to be approximately $2M dollars, and there was no accounting for the missing $6M dollars.
Forensic examination of cell phones, personal computers, and financial activity uncovered data fragments which, upon analysis, were traceable to an undisclosed bank account that had been surreptitiously accessed by the husband. Following a subpoena to the bank, it was discovered that this undisclosed account contained about $6 million dollars. A settlement agreement was reached and greatly favored our client.
