- Business Dissolution & Shareholder Dispute
To provide for the division of property in connection with a marital divorce or a shareholder/partnership dissolution, it is often necessary to determine the value of various kinds of property owned by one or the other party, or by the two of them together. A valuation of the business or business interests owned by one party usually will be required in determining the price that the party acquiring full title is to pay to the other.
We offer experience valuing the following in connection with marital or partnership dissolution:
- Closely-held businesses
- Employment contracts
- Intellectual property
- Personal goodwill
- Professional practices
- Stock options, notes and other investment assets
