Chelmsford Business Owner Divorce Lawyer
Working to Protect Massachusetts Business Owners
It is a common concern for many business owners. You started a business to support yourself and your family, and you built it up into a successful enterprise. Years later, you are facing divorce, and a spouse who is demanding part-ownership of the company or claiming a massive financial settlement based on an inflated business valuation.
I am Chelmsford divorce lawyer Kevin Broderick, and at the Broderick Law Firm, I represent business owners throughout northeast Massachusetts who are going through divorce. I have nearly 20 years of experience handling complex issues related to asset protection, business valuation and appreciation.
Thorough Preparation With a Network of Experts
After handling divorce for business owners in and around Middlesex County for nearly 20 years, I have built a reliable network of experts with whom I work closely. I regularly bring in business valuation experts, accounting professionals and actuaries who can analyze your business, determine its value and place a value on any contributions your spouse made to its success. With this type of information in hand, I will be prepared to negotiate intelligently for a fair settlement. If trial is necessary, I will be ready to present your case in court.
Contemplating the Division of All Business-Related Assets
Much of my job as an experienced Andover business owner divorce attorney involves making sense of very complex portfolios of assets and liabilities. If you choose me to represent you, I will take into account all relevant items, including:
- Business goodwill and business continuation plans, if necessary
- Appreciation of separate property
- Commercial real estate concerns
- Responsibility for business loans and debts
- Protection of any trade secrets or intellectual property
As in all divorce cases, if you have children, I will work to ensure that child custody and support arrangements are sufficient to meet their needs as well as yours. As important as the business is, preserving a healthy relationship with your kids is the top priority.
