Henry has lectured throughout the country on this subject, as well as how minority shareholders can develop strategies to make their ownership more valuable. Henry is our guest today on family business litigation issues.

Topics covered on this show: 1) How family business owners can manipulate the value of the business during a divorce, and what to do about it; 2) How family business owners can manipulate the income of a divorcing family member, and what to do about it; 3) If you are to take stock in a family business as part of a settlement, what extra protections do you want—board membership, veto over salaries, veto over family hiring, tag along rights, etc.; 4) If you get stock in a family business without an exit, how can you get bought out at a fairer price. Facing the reality that minority interest is less valuable; 5) If you own a family business, how you can protect the business from a vindictive divorcing spouse.
