Mom and Pop’s Shop During Times of Divorce

This month, The Portland Daily Journal of Commerce featured a great article authored by Managing Shareholder, Shawn Menashe, in its annual Legal Edition. With the headline of “The Separation of  Mom’s and Pop’s Shop,” the piece outlined the top factors small business owners should consider when filing for divorce. Shawn began the article by explaining, “When it comes to property division in divorce, for better or worse, Oregon is an equitable division state.” The article provided an excellent outline along with the many reasons why in family law cases involving small and family-owned businesses, it is essential to hire a lawyer with experience in business valuation issues to accurately determine the appropriate method for business valuation and creative solutions during times of divorce.  View the article HERE.
