Business Interests

Libertyville Divorce and Business Valuation Lawyer

Divorce and Business Valuation

If you own part or all of a business, resolving the property distribution aspect of a divorce can become much more complicated. Who gets the business? What about the income the business has generated, and the equity in the business? Will your divorce cause a disruption in the day-to-day activities of your company?

These are some important questions that beg careful consideration. At the Libertyville, Illinois family law firm of Matthew Kaplan, we have helped many entrepreneurs, business owners, and their spouses reach agreements in matters regarding the business interests involved in their divorces. Whenever possible, we try to reach agreements that not only work for both parties, but are also beneficial to the business involved.

Though we prefer negotiation to litigation, if called upon we are ready, willing, and extremely capable of fighting to protect your interests in court. Our attorneys have more than thirty years of combined experience in family law and have worked with business owners and entrepreneurs with annual incomes ranging from $70K to more than $3 million dollars.
