If you or your spouse own a business, it will need to be considered amongst all other assets when dealing with your financial settlement.
Divorce can result in serious damage to a business. Our family business team specialise in negotiating equitable arrangements that avoid such damage and create as little disruption as possible. We have extremely close links with top accountants and financial advisors who we can work with to ensure you secure the most appropriate arrangement.
Due to the detrimental impact divorce can have on a business, we specialise in advising business owners who are considering marriage or a civil-partnership. Advance protection, in the form of a pre-nuptial agreement, a post-nuptial agreement or company restructuring, can avoid significant emotional and financial stress should a relationship break down.
As a business owner, you should not just think about the effect your own relationship may have on your company. Instead, thought should be given to the relationships of any children or staff members with an interest in your business.
Our family business team can work with any members of your family and business to ensure that their personal lives do not impact on your company’s prosperity.
