Bill Gates has hired the legal firm started by Warren Buffett’s right-hand man to help lead his $130 billion divorce from wife Melinda.
Munger, Tolles & Olson is listed as one of three firms representing the Microsoft co-founder after Gates’ wife of 27 years filed for divorce on Monday, according to documents shared by TMZ.
The law firm was founded in 1962 by Charles Munger, who has long been Buffett’s right-hand man after meeting him in 1959.
Munger — now 97 and worth $2.2 billion, according to Forbes — is not listed as one of the lawyers in the case, however.
However, he is known to have a close working relationship with Gates, who until last year had been on the board of Berkshire Hathaway, Buffett’s investment company for which Munger is vice chairman.
