Family Law Litigation Involving Business Disputes

Intensity and Experience

Divorce is an emotional roller coaster.  Let us keep your business assets in check.

Our deep experience in private business and shareholder/owner disputes has led to our engagement in marital dissolution proceedings where the control or value of the business property is a major issue. When the stakes are significant, the business value may be the most important financial issue in the case.

If a divorce involves business valuation, ownership issues, or division of business assets, specialized business litigators who routinely represent such companies and their owners can be extremely valuable. We have represented both husbands and wives, and have advised grandparents on grandparent rights. We have also been hired in a consultative capacity and work cooperatively with other lawyers who seek our advice and guidance on litigating complex valuation issues as they arise in ongoing divorce proceedings.
