Divorcing? Own a business? Let's talk.

50% of all marriages in the USA unfortunately end in divorce. Small businesses account for almost 80% of the GDP in the US.

Combined, these 2 facts would seem to suggest that you likely know someone who is contemplating a divorce, and owns an interest in a small business.

If this applies to you, please reach out to us for a confidential conversation about your specific situation.




Business Partnership Disputes

Business partners can sometimes be very similar to actual partners, in terms of how much time and energy is required to maintain a positive working relationship.

In some instances, business partners unfortunately have to separate themselves from each other.

When a business relationship is no longer tenable, a business valuation can sometimes be of great assistance in determining the value of each partner's interest, and facilitating the process of one partner purchasing the shares of the other.



Verify the price of your target business.

If you are fortunate enough to be in the position of purchasing an interest in a business, the seller of that interest might not have your best interest at heart.

Part of your due diligence should include determining the value of that business, and leveraging an external, objective resource is the best way of accomplishing this.

Business sellers generally have a much higher opinion on what the value of their business is, than do objective business appraisers. Protect yourself.
