Business Divorce Roundtable
About This Show
When co-owners of a business can no longer get along, they need a divorce – a business divorce. The Business Divorce Roundtable presents lively conversations with top experts from a variety of fields – lawyers, judges, mediators, appraisers, accountants, and academicians – on the legal and practical issues including business valuation that business owners and their professional advisors need to know to navigate the turbulent waters of a business partnership breakup.
The Business Divorce Roundtable is hosted by Peter Mahler, a partner at the Farrell Fritz law firm in New York City and author of the New York Business Divorce blog. www.nybusinessdivorce.com.
