East Bay Attorney for Divorce And Business Valuation

When one or both parties in a divorce own and operate a business or professional enterprise, the assets associated with that business come under great scrutiny during divorce proceedings. Rarely does a couple continue to share ownership over the business, so the financial value of that business is analyzed for fair and equitable property division.

Valuing a business is not as simple as looking at accounting spreadsheets. The value of assets the business holds, its goodwill, the profit it earns and the actual market value for that business can all be dramatically different. It is important that you work with an experienced Berkeley divorce and business valuation lawyer who can address these and other unique issues in your divorce.

Bridging Solutions In Business Valuation And Divorce

Some factors that go into business valuation include:

  • Industry opportunities and challenges
  • Market stability or stagnation
  • Potential for growth and the economic conditions surrounding business operations
  • Value of business assets, including real estate, stocks and capital
  • Brand value/goodwill, and nontransferable assets like the skill set of the owner (as in professional practices like doctor/dentist-owned clinics, retail/manufacturing businesses, investment firms, legal practices and other similar businesses)

Furthermore, resolving a business division dispute is greatly influenced by each party's goals. Both parties may be fighting for ownership, one party may need to buy out the other's share of the business, or neither may want to continue ownership and instead aim to sell the enterprise altogether.
