The Wall Street Journal Law Blog quoted Joshua Rubenstein, chair of the Firm’s National Trusts and Estates Practice, in an article about the growing popularity of post-nuptial agreements. In the article, Mr. Rubenstein notes that many of today’s wealthy couples didn’t have big fortunes when they married, but as their businesses, properties or assets have surged in value during the wealth boom of recent years, the spouse who generates the wealth wants more protection in the case of divorce. This has led to marital agreements being signed, in some cases, long after the wedding ("The Rise of the Postnup," June 20, 2007).
