Business Valuation of Closely-Held Businesses And Control Issues
In high net worth divorces, the valuation and control of a closely-held business can be the most important issue in the case. Many of the attorneys at Fisher, Bendeck & Potter, P.L, before becoming matrimonial lawyers, had extensive experience as corporate litigators, providing them with the insight into corporate structures, corporate law, tax, and accounting such that, when a divorce case effectively turns into corporate litigation, they are prepared.
The firm's attorneys have litigated cases involving nearly every sector of the economy, e.g., oil and gas companies, defense and aerospace contractors, real estate developers and managers, internet companies, power companies, auto dealerships, private equity firms, hedge funds, waste and recycling companies, and major sports franchises. Jeffrey Fisher, in addition to litigating business valuation issues for the last two decades, has also lectured on the topic for the American Society of Appraisers.
