How Our Legal Team Can Assist You
Our law firm is equipped to address the many critical issues that are unique to high-asset divorces in which there is a business, such as:
- Protecting business financial standings: The financial standing of a business is critical during divorce. Many times, the business owner is so focused on the divorce that attention is diverted away from the business and it struggles. Others attempt to divert assets, hide assets within the business or diminish business value. We use injunctions, restraining orders and other resources to ensure the business remains intact and operating at the same level.
- Protecting business name and reputation: A business’ good name, goodwill or reputation can keep a business alive and thriving. If the reputation is tarnished, it could significantly impair business relations and ultimately profitability. In some cases, we may use necessary strategies to keep an ex-spouse from causing harm to the business after the divorce is finalized.
- Obtaining proper business valuations: Comprehensive business valuation and analysis is critical to ensure fair property distribution in divorce. We work with business advisers, CPAs and other experts to ensure the business is properly assessed, the spouse’s percentage of the business is identified and the property settlement fairly reflects our client’s interests.
