Pittsburgh Business Valuations Lawyers
If you or your spouse is self-employed or has an ownership stake in a business, there may be a need to conduct a business valuation as part of the divorce process.
There are different techniques for calculating the value of a business. Spivak Law Firm works with forensic accounts and business valuators to locate hidden assets and perform calculations to determine the Fair Market Value of the business.
In the majority of cases, financial experts can help facilitate settlement. If necessary, the experts and their reports may be utilized to fully litigate disputes over the value of the business at an equitable distribution hearing.

Business Valuations and Fair Market Value
Three common techniques for assigning value to a business include:
- Fair Market Value: the price at which the company would change hands between a willing buyer and a willing seller
- Book Value: subtracting a company’s total liabilities from its total assets
- Liquidation Value: measuring the total worth of a company’s physical assets if it were to go out of business and its assets sold
In Pennsylvania, family courts assign values to companies based on their Fair Market Value. In divorce and alimony cases involving complex financial matters, Spivak Law Firm works with forensic experts and business valuators to advance our clients’ interests.
