Hangley Aronchick Segal Pudlin & Schiller shareholder Gerald L. Shoemaker recently spoke on “Divorce and Distribution of Hard to Value and Non-Transferable Business Interests” for a Strafford web seminar. Shoemaker and other panelists offered perspectives and guidance on the complex valuation and distribution issues that can arise when a divorce involves interest in a limited partnership or other business investment entity. These issues include the types of business interests that create distribution issues, the complexities of valuation, and the settlement options available.

A shareholder in the Norristown office, Shoemaker focuses his practice on domestic relations issues, including equitable distribution, alimony, custody, and support matters. He is a member of the American and Montgomery County Bar Associations, and was selected to participate in the Pennsylvania Bar Association’s prestigious leadership program. Shoemaker has been repeatedly recognized as a leader in family law, including most recently being named one of the Greater Philadelphia Region’s Ten Leaders in Divorce Law, 45 & Under, by the Ten Leaders Cooperative. In addition, he has earned multiple recognitions by Pennsylvania Super Lawyers magazine as a Rising Star in Family Law.

Shoemaker graduated in 2000 from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, where he was selected by the faculty to the Order of the Barristers. He received his BA from Duquesne University in 1997.
