Divorce law for entrepreneurs

‘Divorce for entrepreneurs’ is one of the mainstays of our firm. Our trio of specialists will provide you with expert support right from the outset, behind the scenes if you prefer.

That can be invaluable, because businesspeople require specialist knowledge in this unique area of family law. Our firm specialises in complex divorce cases. Our knowledge and experience in corporate law means we can always think one step ahead and anticipate potential issues. More than the ‘average’ lawyer, we can ensure that you benefit from certain aspects of commercial law, such as the relevance of a rising current account, a salary for the director that is too low or too high, and/or profit fluctuations in the annual accounts. Judges are accustomed to making figures real in their own way, and that is why you need a proactive lawyer to present your case.

It is in your interest that we become involved in potential divorce proceedings as early as possible. A provisional decision on child maintenance payments is bound to have an effect on subsequent settlements. And the same goes for access to your children. The longer you go without seeing them, the more difficult it becomes to secure good access. We are aware that divorce is always a sensitive matter, especially when there are questions around access to children and maintenance payments. We look at these aspects both separately and in coherence. We have learned that caution is usually the best policy. For example, in your interest, we can seek a collaborative divorce. This means reaching an equitable settlement collectively, together with your partner’s lawyer.

But in contrast to mediation, you have an expert at the table who will focus solely on your interests. Of course, we will not shy away from taking the initiative and starting legal proceedings when called for. Sometimes there is simply no other reasonable course of action. You can rest assured that you will be informed of any legal proceedings in advance. It can often take considerable time before you find out where you stand. But we can help you to understand what is going on. Based on our personal commitment and extensive experience in court, we will provide you with a realistic assessment of what your options are.
