In one of his most high-profile cases, Cohen helped Gates, 58, walk away from her divorce from Bill Gates with an estimated settlement of about $76 billion.

Cohen and Clair were West’s fifth law firm in this divorce case, as the billionaire entertainer has had a revolving door of lawyers represent him over the past year and a half.

Kardashian, 42, filed to divorce West in February 2021, and the former couple was declared legally single in March 2022. However, discussions have continued over finances and custody of their four kids: North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm.
