Business Division Attorneys

Experience To Protect Your Legal Interests As A Business Owner Or Spouse

There is a saying: "Never mix business with pleasure." Many spouses who go into business together or those who maintain a business separate from their personal lives learn the hard way that business matters can quickly become a flash point in divorce litigation.

Fried and Fried, P.A., has established a reputation for excellence and results in southwest Florida, representing spouses who own businesses together as well as ones who maintain professional practices and other businesses outside their married lives. We recognize that dividing business interests can add significant complexity to already complicated divorce disputes. Our aim is to provide focused counsel that identifies our clients' long-term priorities and then executes the proper strategy to see those through.

Representing Business Owners, Co-Owners And Spouses In Florida

Businesses come in all shapes and sizes. As such, there is no one way to handle divorces that involve dividing business interests or determining other arrangements to resolve disagreements. Our clients have the benefit of working with attorneys who handle business valuation and all other aspects of high net worth divorces in Florida and know from experience how to shield their interests in the face of complex circumstances.

Examples of our representation in this area include:

  • Individuals who co-own a business with their spouse
  • Individuals, including physicians, who own a private practice
  • Spouses of individuals who own a private practice

In the case of married business owners, we can determine whether a buyout of one by the other is the ideal course of action or, if circumstances permit, whether continuing the business venture as-is best serves our client's interest. In the case of professional practices, we can structure settlements (including setting the terms of alimony and dividing other property) that meet our clients' goals.
