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.
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.
