Not Just Experience


When A Closely Held Business Is Part Of Your Marital Estate

If you and/or your spouse own a small business or stock in a small business or have significant investments tied up with a small business, you likely worry about both the divorce and the business. A first step in understanding how these business assets may impact your divorce is to know what they are worth.

Turn To Reliable Legal Counsel Regarding Your Business Valuation Questions

Business valuation for closely held businesses in Tennessee can be complex. If I am your divorce attorney, I will guide you through the process of determining the dollar value of you and your spouse’s business interests.

As a family law attorney, I opened my Nashville office, James L. Weatherly Jr., Attorney at Law, over 40 years ago. I am well aware of the pitfalls you may encounter as you seek reliable business valuation in Tennessee. Your spouse’s lawyer will likely direct him or her to different business valuation specialists and will naturally use the information gathered to prepare arguments in support of a business valuation that favors your spouse.

A dispute over which figures are most accurate and which expert’s opinion is the best supported will be the result. I have helped many clients be successful in property division cases through my experience and use of highly trained and respected valuation experts.
