The breakdown of a relationship can be damaging where disputes over businesses are involved, particularly if both parties want to maintain an interest in the business in the future.  Such disputes can impact on the efficient running of the business, its value or even its viability.

Many of our clients are owners and senior managers of SME companies, corporate entities and partnerships.  We deal regularly with businesses on divorce, from sole trader income vehicles, to partnerships and limited companies.  We are business-minded yet sensitive to each client’s individual circumstances.

Working closely with other experts we aim to understand your business, value it appropriately and to consider issues such as realistic future earnings, tax and liquidity when negotiating to secure your preferred outcome.

We provide an holistic service by drawing on the expertise of colleagues in other specialist teams such as commercial, private client and employment, to address relevant issues as and when they arise.
