Your business is worth more than just its market price.
Business owners who are involved in a divorce are often required to divide assets and value of the business.

That is why our business law attorneys are highly experienced in family and divorce laws as well. We strive to protect the business and assets of each of our clients during their difficult divorce.

In a divorce, assets are often equitably divided. In order to do so, however, the court must be presented with a complete listing of assets and the worth of those assets. Our attorneys are experienced in determining the true value of a business by taking into consideration its market value, potential for earnings, investments made and more. With a team of trusted forensic accountants, tax attorneys and certified public accountants, our law firm is able to truly determine the value of any business and provide that information to our clients and the court.
For clients who own a business with their spouse, a divorce can be devastating. Not only is a personal relationship coming to a close, but a professional relationship may be ending as well. While it is typical for both parties to want to do what's best for the business, determining an equitable division of the business can lead to emotional and stressful situations. With a qualified business valuation attorney from Shigo Law Firm present for negotiations, mediation and trial, a valuation for divorce can be completed faster so that all parties may come to an agreement.
If you are going through a divorce, it is best to acquire representation early. Don't wait until negotiations become uncivil, and don't let a spouse's attorney tell you what your business is worth. Trust a business valuation and divorce attorney from Shigo Law Firm, P.A., in Gainesville or Ocala, to protect your business assets and determine equitable distribution after valuation.
