With a background in finance and accounting, and with specialized training in business valuation, Paul helps clients determine the value of privately held business interests, often in high-stakes, complex and (sometimes) contentious shareholder and family law disputes. Business valuation expertise is critical to his clients with respect to shareholder and governance issues, shareholders looking to exit companies who either have or lack liquidity rights, families in multi-generational businesses, divorce actions where an interest in the company is subject to marital division, post-acquisition disputes, and officers, directors, or shareholders in oppression litigation, dissenters’ rights actions, or actions involving breach of fiduciary duties, and trustees and beneficiaries of trusts holding privately held interests.
