Business Valuation Lawyers in Wilmington NC

Business valuation can be one of the most legally and technically complex areas of divorce law. If you own property with your spouse, however, it is an essential step to property division. Whether it be a multi-million dollar business with multiple outlets around the country, or a closely-held family business — Lea/Schultz has seen it before.

In order to divide a business in an accurate matter, a number of factors are taken into consideration, including:

  • Nature of the business
  • Earning capacity
  • Net worth and current financial condition
  • Earnings and expense history
  • Economic outlook for the business and for the industry
  • Dividend paying capacity
  • Stock prices, if any

Once figures for the above have been determined, a skilled business appraiser will make a projection of the company’s future value and earning potential.

A successful business valuation requires a high degree of cooperation between your lawyer and the business appraiser. The Lea/Schultz law firm has real-world trial experience in valuing and protecting your business.

The Lea/Schultz Law Firm, P.C., a law firm dedicated to family and domestic law, has helped a multitude of clients with divorces involving business valuation. We will meet with you to understand your situation and advise on next steps for division of your company.
