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.

Episode 13: Interview with Justice Carolyn E. Demarest (Ret.) on Business Divorce Litigation
During her many years as Presiding Justice of the Brooklyn Commercial Division, New York Supreme Court Justice Carolyn E. Demarest (Ret.) decided some of the most important and challenging business divorce matters including the Mizrahi case which established equitable buy-out as an available remedy in LLC dissolution cases, and the Natanel case in which after trial she ordered dissolution of a 50/50 real estate LLC that had no operating agreement based on conflicting testimony as to its purpose. In this episode of the Business Divorce Roundtable, Justice Demarest shares her judicial perspective on those cases and a variety of other issues in business divorce litigation. The interview also features a discussion with Justice Demarest, who joined JAMS as a neutral after leaving the bench last year, about the benefits of mediating business divorce disputes.
