Business Assets and Divorce

If you’d like to talk to us about a divorce that involves a business, please call our free legal helpline on freephone 0333 888 0404 for initial guidance, or send an email to us at [email protected]

If you or your spouse have a business in joint or sole names, these will be relevant for financial settlement.  Businesses can provide income and hold capital and so need to be valued and included in financial disclosure.  In some cases we liaise with forensic accounts, surveyors, land agents, agricultural lending specialists and valuers may be needed to establish a clear picture of the value of the businesses and what it can generate in income, capital and borrowing.

Your first step – Specialist advice from our divorce solicitors

It’s important to get legal advice early in the divorce process so you get the right guidance at the right time in order to safeguard your interests. Though it can be complex, our team of specialist solicitors will combine our in-depth knowledge of business law and family law to make the process as stress-free as possible. It is particularly important to make sure the business is correctly valued for divorce purposes. Valuation is a complicated area and we work with experienced independent valuers who understand the issues that arise during a divorce.
