Family Law and Personal Injury Attorneys
When couples own a business or a share of a business together, those business interests become part of a divorce should the marriage end. Divorces involving joint business interests can be very complex and require the assistance of an attorney who is knowledgeable in this area. At the Law Office of Martoccio & Martoccio, our attorneys are skilled in handling business valuations. We carefully examine the financial information pertaining to the business to determine an accurate business value, and we aggressively represent your interests in reaching a property settlement.
The process of valuing a business requires closely reviewing the business’ financial accounts. Our attorneys are experienced in working with business financial documents, and we consult with accounting specialists when necessary. If you already have a recent valuation for the business, we can review the accuracy of that valuation to ensure the business is fully valued and your interests are protected. With a proper business valuation in hand, we will work with you to negotiate a fair division of property in your divorce. We listen to you to understand your financial priorities and goals, and strive to achieve those goals as effectively as possible.
It is not uncommon for business valuations to result in legal disputes. In some cases, one party will attempt to undervalue or overvalue a business to manipulate the property settlement in his or her favor. These disputes frequently require litigation to be resolved. Our attorneys are skilled trial attorneys experienced in advocating for clients in business valuation matters. We frequently work with complex divorces including those involving high asset divorce protection and prenuptial/postnuptial agreements.
