Experienced Attorney Daniel J. Lounsbury
A family business can be a source of great pride. In divorce, it can be a source of conflict. Under Oregon law, a business must be divided equally between both spouses. When divorce involves dividing a business, the guidance of an experienced attorney is essential. For years, clients have put their trust in me, Daniel J. Lounsbury, to protect their interests.
The first step in dividing a business is to accurately determine what it is worth. This can be a source of contention, as you and your spouse may disagree on the business’s value. I work with professionals, such as business valuation experts and forensic accountants, who can thoroughly examine a business and determine its value.
Salem Lawyer For Accurate Business Valuation
Assessing the value of a business requires us to consider a variety of factors such as:
- Projected earnings
- Essential employees
As a business owner, you are likely very concerned about protecting the business that you have worked hard to build. As the spouse of a business owner, you have the right to an equitable share of that asset. I represent clients who own businesses, and spouses of business owners. Regardless of which side you are on, I will take the necessary steps to assert your interests.
While many attorneys favor aggressive tactics, I prefer to think strategically and offer client-focused solutions. However, when protecting my client means going to trial, I am prepared to provide forceful representation in court.
