Handling Business Assets
on Divorce

All available assets are taken into account when a marriage breaks down and the family finances are redistributed – including business interests. Our expert lawyers can help ensure the best outcome for you, your business and its stakeholders as you go through divorce proceedings.

Businesses are often sold or leveraged to meet orders made by the court. Our private wealth team understands that this can be particularly concerning when a business provides the family income or when your business is part of your own personal brand as an entrepreneur. It’s also an outcome that can have a significant impact for business partners and employees as well as the family itself.

We know that every business and every family is different. Our solicitors focus on a pragmatic approach to obtain the best outcome in each individual situation. Working with Irwin Mitchell’s accomplished tax and commercial solicitors, we can provide forward-thinking solutions for businesses of all shapes and sizes.

Assessing Your Business Interests

No divorce is simple, but negotiations can become much more complicated when the business interests of either or both parties are taken into account. Questions that arise can include:

  • How much is a business interest really worth?
  • Should or can it be sold?
  • Is a business wholly dependent upon a particular individual?
  • Who owns the company property?
  • What might be the potential impact on employee and other shareholders?

These issues are particularly difficult within the complex international structures used by high net worth individuals to manage their wealth. Whether you have a family enterprise, an individual commercial venture or an interest in a larger company, we can help you get the best result for you and your family.
