Katie Holmes paid a visit to the high-powered New York law firm on Friday, which is representing her in the divorce case from Tom Cruise.

Casually dressed in white jeans and a yellow top, the 33-year-old actor arrived with four bodyguards in a Mercedes with black-tinted windows about 11:30 am at the midtown Manhattan building, housing the offices of Aronson, Mayefsky and Sloan, People Magazine reported. According to observers, daughter Suri, 6, was not with her.

The visit comes after Cruise attorney Bert Fields spoke out to the BBC about the possible next steps for the 50-year-old superstar. “Tactically we can’t say where Tom will file a divorce case and if he’ll be seeking joint custody of Suri,” Fields said. “We are letting ‘the other side’ play the media until they wear everyone out and then we’ll have something to say,” the lawyer added.

The divorce case involves legal heavyweights on both coasts.

Holmes’s attorneys Allan Mayefsky and his partner Michael Mosberg work for the firm that represented Peter Cook in his bitter 2008 divorce from Christie Brinkley. Their co-counsel, Jonathan Wolfe of Skoloff and Wolfe in Livingston, New Jersey, has handled the divorces of football star Braylon Edwards and NHL player Martin Brodeur.

Fields is a longtime Cruise business lawyer in Los Angeles with a host of celebrity clients. The actor’s lead divorce lawyer, Dennis Wasser, is another prominent Hollywood attorney who represented Cruise in his divorce from Nicole Kidman.
