Helping You Divide a North Carolina Family Business in Divorce Proceedings

We handle all matters related to the equitable distribution of business assets pursuant to divorce. We will work with you at the time of divorce to fairly divide business interests, or can help you put estate planning in place that provides a plan for business succession in the event of death.

Most of the business interests we assist clients with are closely held enterprises that are not necessarily publicly traded companies. Often, it can be extremely difficult to determine the fair market value of these types of businesses. The fair distribution of family business interests can be further complicated when both spouses have worked for or added value to the business.

We understand the complexities that come with determining the value of a business and ensuring that both parties to a divorce receive a fair distribution of the worth of the business. We have extensive experience working with other professionals, including business appraisers, to identify the actual value of a business. We know how to evaluate and interpret an appraisal so that you get the appropriate distribution from a family-owned business.
