Protecting Your Business Interests During Divorce Proceedings

As a business owner engaged in divorce proceedings, your commercial interests add a layer of complexity to an already difficult legal process. It is critical to work with an attorney who knows how to protect your business assets when you are negotiating the terms of your property division agreement. We are happy to work with your family law counsel on issues of value and enforcement of a shareholders agreement.

Our attorneys have a substantial understanding of state laws that shape your legal options and affect your business’s viability. We leverage this insight when we develop strategies that minimize the impact your divorce has on your revenue and long-term objectives.

Steps To Take To Safeguard Your Interests

Our lawyers pursue all options to defend your business interests. We frequently advise small-business owners on legal tools that can be used to minimize the disruption that a divorce could cause to your business.

We are qualified to draft, revise and execute a variety of contracts that include:

  • Premarital and post-nuptial agreements
  • Buy/sell agreements
  • Trusts

In addition to utilizing these tools, we can assist with entity selection and succession planning.

Legal Options To Consider During Divorce

When you hire our business law attorneys to advocate for you in property division negotiations, we will study your business’s financial documents before we make our recommendations. We can facilitate business transactions that allow you to purchase the other party’s stake in your business, sell your stake or find another solution that allows you to keep your business running.
