‘Our clients are very often dealing with one of the worst situations they could in their lives, and so their anxiety or their emotions are running high on a good day,’ says Blank Rome partner Lois Liberman, who is adept and sensitive in helping couples with the emotional fallout of divorce. Recently, Liberman has conducted a webinar helping clients to understand how to deal with issues such as coercive control. ‘It's not really an accepted principle [in New York law], per se, yet there's so much of it,’ she says.
Her practice also produces a large number of pre-nuptial agreements. ‘I think the numbers are pretty much the estimated to be… 50 per cent of Americans are going to end in some sort of divorce or break up,’ she says. ‘People still have not been turned off by the process. So we're still having a lot of prenuptial agreements.’
