This singular focus and team effort allows each of our attorneys to find effective and creative approaches for resolving complex issues for high-level professionals and business owners.

Accurate Valuation is the Top Priority

The court cannot award a complex asset such as a business to either party until it determines the asset’s value. Handling these matters requires a working knowledge of valuation principles, taxation, compensation issues, accounting principles, general foundational business knowledge, the complex and conflicting divorce valuation statutes, relevant case law and superior divorce litigation skills. To achieve the best results, we utilize the best experts with knowledge specific to the asset in question.

Who Owns the Business?

In California, there are two types of property: separate and community. If one party owned a business before the marriage, the business is separate property, owned solely by the party who formed it. The court may, however, require that party to reimburse the community for a portion of the increase in value during the marriage.
