Divorce triggered the breakup of a business

DIVISION OF PROPERTY – A married couple was divorcing after 35 years together.  During their time together, they had built up a significant production business.


Both had management positions in the company, so the divorce triggered a major dispute on how the division of property should take place in in particular how it would affect the company’s future operations.

The case was headed to court and was headed for judgement when the parties’ lawyers suggested mediation to their clients. The attorney’s were convinced that through mediation it would be possible to find a solution that could not be reached via a judgement.

After 10 hours mediation, the company was divided in a manner that both parties could live with.
