Business Startups, Professional Practices And Family Companies

When you own a company or professional practice, there are often more complicated issues in divorce. You may need to consider a buyout of shares. In some cases, the sale of the business is necessary.

It may be hard to keep emotions at bay, and this can lead to costly mistakes. As much as possible, you need to consider the divorce as another business transaction.

We can help you do this. We have a successful record of resolving issues of debt and asset division for California entrepreneurs. The Law Offices of David M. Lederman has guided business owners in Contra Costa County through complicated divorce cases for almost two decades.

Characterization and Valuation of Business Property

When was the business started? The answer to this question may factor into characterizing property as community or separate. Did you start the business before your marriage, but it only took off when your spouse started helping with sales? We can help with complicated property division issues and tracing separate assets.

How much is the business, startup or professional practice worth? This is often a tough question for entrepreneurs and their spouses. Our attorneys carefully review all business assets and debts, and work together with other experts when necessary to place an accurate valuation on the business.
