Karolina Dehnhard joined Lindabury, McCormick, Estabrook & Cooper PC in Westfield as partner in the firm’s divorce and family law practice, and as managing director of the international law group.
In her matrimonial practice, Dehnhard focuses on divorce, prenuptial agreements, child custody, parenting time, alimony, child support, adoption, and domestic violence issues. She assists with complex financial issues, including valuation of businesses both domestically and abroad; international custody rights; the impact of immigration status on divorcing spouses and their children; enforcement of foreign divorce decrees; and the complexities associated with alimony rights and post-judgment cohabitation.
A native of Poland, Dehnhard founded the Polish-American Chamber of Commerce North-East, which focuses on collaboration between Polish and American business networks with an eye toward international development. She’s often tapped to present workshops geared toward educating Polish-based companies on doing business in the U.S.
Lindabury has a history of providing counsel to American businesses expanding into international markets, according to the firm. The corporate and mergers & acquisitions groups assist with the formation, financing, and governance of businesses in accordance with local legal and regulatory requirements. Lindabury is also the lone U.S. representative to The Parlex Group, a group of several dozen mid-sized law firms in Europe and Asia, in which Lindabury attorneys help international businesses enter and expand into the U.S. market.
“We are excited about the addition of Karolina Dehnhard to the firm,” said Lindabury President David Pierce in a statement. “She is very well-versed in matrimonial law and international business transactions, and brings considerable expertise to Lindabury’s already established role in providing counsel for clients expanding into international markets.”
