Russian Billionaire, Dmitry Rybolovlev, was just handed a record divorce settlement of $4.8 billion. This comes on the heals of him turning down the original offer from his now ex-wife of $1 billion dollars last year. Sometimes it pays to gamble and other times it doesn’t, as is the current case. Rybolovlev has already begun the process of appealing and it is projected that this case will last for a minimum of 10 years.
When dealing with assets of this magnitude it would be logical to assume that this will not end amicably or swiftly. This case is very unique in the fact that there are billions of dollars at stake. Making matters more challenging is that this case covers multiple jurisdictions, and countries. There are a plethora of variables that need to be analyzed and even more obstacles that haven’t arisen yet.
