A relationship breakdown can be really difficult for a family to deal with at the best of times, however when this involves the family business there is an additional level of complexity that needs to be thought through.

In this episode I am joined by Zahra Pabani from law firm Irwin Mitchell as we discuss what you can do to protect the families assets, including the family business, in the event of a relationship breakdown.

We look at

  • Living together agreements
  • Pre-Nuptial Agreements
  • Post-Nuptial Agreements

We also look at what characteristics need to be in place for ex-spouses to remain in business together following a divorce, should you wish to.
