How your company or business is effected in case of marriage and divorce

Even the more “common” areas within family law are rather complex even to specialized legal advisors. Interdisciplinary expertise is an absolute must, when entrepreneurs are to get married or face divorce proceedings and business assets (such as a company or a business) become part of the estate. Certain precautionary measures, such as reaching a prenuptial agreement, are well advised. Divorce cases require a significant corporate legal expertise in order to effectively protect the clients interest, such as the proper value assessment of the business in order to determine the statutory capital gains adjustment. Such cases equally require attorneys specialized in family law and corporate law or even tax law.

Certified legal specialists in the field of family law – what really matters

Family law is truly a legal field requiring specialized expertise. The ideal constitution of a prenuptial agreement or the protection of interests in case of a divorce requires great theoretical insight as well as extensive practical experience, which is hardly obtainable by an attorney only occasionally handling such matters. In family law, a good attorney is labelled by obtaining a specialized legal practice certificate as well as academic work and research and through practice within this specific legal field.

Aside from the sheer legal skills, family law requires a certain aptitude. A good practicing attorney in the field of family law should also be well acquainted with corporate- and tax legislation, while also being capable of assessing the family-, social- and emotional aspects of a given conflict.

As a corporate law firm, we here at ROSE & PARTNER provide the relevant know-how even beyond the field of family law and are capable of deploying alternative conflict management as well as further methods of mediation.
