Two of the attorneys on opposite sides of the Bill and Melinda Gates divorce case also represented the opposing sides in the 2019 divorce of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and his ex-wife MacKenzie Scott.
Ted Billbe, one of the lead lawyers for Bill Gates in this case, represented Scott in her divorce from Bezos.
Bezos, despite the hit his fortune took from his divorce settlement, is back on top of the list with an estimated worth of $194 billion.
Anderson's web site says that she specializes in complex divorces in Kings County, Washington, where Seattle and many of its suburbs are located, with an emphasis on cases involving substantial estates, stock options, business valuations, international or multi-state assets, among other things.
Billbe's site says "we often work in high asset cases," and "cases with substantial family wealth," as well as those "involving business executives which present complicated compensation and deferred compensation issues. "
Both Anderson and Billbe also were listed as speakers at a Washington State family law conference last month.
