Divorce can result in big issues for the owner or officer of a company. While Richards Rodriguez & Skeith doesn’t practice divorce law, we do work with divorce lawyers and companies to resolve the complex business issues that the dissolution of marital property may present.
The struggle lies not only in determining how the business assets should be split, but in the steps that are actually required to enable the division.
We Can Help
The business practices group at Richards Rodriguez & Skeith are seasoned business attorneys who can help assist divorce lawyers, their clients, and businesses, with understanding your ownership interests, and how to work through these complexities.
We Have Your Interests In Mind
This is true for an existing ownership interest or an equity interest. We can assist with the valuation of the business, help negotiate the terms of the transaction, and prepare all the transaction documents. Our team has a great deal of experience representing the parties on either side. Some of these transactions may involve the valuation and division of assets like real estate, or unusual assets like intellectual property. We understand these transactions and can help facilitate them so that they are implemented correctly.
You Have Options
In addition, the business practices group at Richards Rodriguez & Skeith works with companies to understand the options a company and other equity interest owners have if one of them is going through a divorce.
There are provisions that can be added to an ownership agreement that can protect the company from changing hands if one of the owners goes through a divorce. This ensures that the management of the company is not disrupted, and the company can continue to accomplish its goals.
