This CLE course will examine the process of a business divorce, when one or more owners of a privately held business legally separate their respective interests either through a dissolution or buy-out. The course will explore the strategic considerations in such a decision as well as the legal concepts involved in representing a client going through a business divorce. The course will offer a full review of the business divorce process and the strategy that business owners can employ to advance their positions in a litigation.
