Valuation share package in matrimonial estate (divorce)

Client: Wife, also director-major shareholder
Industry: Construction – architects

Both husband and wife were entrepreneurs with a private limited liability company but in different lines of industry. They were getting a divorce through mediation. They had married under a matrimonial contract that precluded any claim by one spouse on assets accruing to the other spouse during the marriage. It had been agreed that the value of the company would not be included in the matrimonial property.   The wife’s private company was bankrupt.

Nederhof advised the wife in the talks with the mediator. In part owing to Nederhof’s involvement an amicable divorce agreement was reached. All tax implications had been reviewed and the agreement allowed both parties to severe all financial ties.

The wife could now restart her business, counselled by Nederhof and an insolvency advisor.
