Business Assets And Property Division
Any property division matter has high financial stakes, but those stakes are multiplied when one or both spouses own a business or professional practice. The division of such assets often gives rise to contentious disputes and divergent claims as to the property’s value and each spouse’s ownership interests in it.
The attorneys at Mark F. Haslem, PC, have the experience and resources to handle these disputes and protect our clients’ ownership interest in a business or professional practice. We have nearly thirty years of experience handling complex divorce issues for clients in Grand Rapids and throughout Michigan.
Valuing A Business In Divorce
What is the true value of a business? In achieving a fair distribution of business assets in a divorce, we must consider all of the factors that contribute to a business’s worth, including:
- Value of equipment
- Value of real estate
- Intellectual property
- Client lists
- Goodwill in the community
We have handled the valuation of businesses in many different sectors. We have access to leading experts in business valuation, real estate, accounting and other fields who help us find the facts in these complex cases.
We can help you explore all of the options available to you, including a buyout, co-ownership or a total sale of the business and division of the proceeds.
Whether you are the business owner or you contributed to the growth of the business as a spouse, our attorneys are committed to protecting your rights and your financial future.
