Professional services firm’s wide range of services address the needs of attorneys and their clients during marital dissolution cases
NAPERVILLE, Ill. — Jan. 31, 2017 — Professional services firm Sikich LLP announced Tuesday that it has expanded its family law valuation and dispute advisory services to include financial planning and wealth management.
“Our clients look to us for our business valuation and dispute advisory services, but many would stand to benefit from Sikich’s wealth management assistance after the litigation ends,” said Jim Godbout, partner in Sikich’s business valuation and dispute advisory practice. “We expect our expanded service package will offer enhanced value to lawyers and their clients.”
Godbout, who will lead the expanded service offering, is an investment adviser representative and certified financial planner. Working with the firm’s experienced wealth management team, he can help ensure a seamless transition from the litigation process to post-litigation financial planning.
Sikich’s valuation and dispute advisory team helps divorce attorneys with business valuations, income and cash flow determinations, forensic accounting services, and lifestyle analyses. And with $750 million in assets under advisement, the firm’s wealth management group offers investment advice as well as financial and retirement planning.
“The non-owning party in any divorce needs expert financial advice in order to ensure long-term lifestyle stability,” said Andrew Paoni, partner-in-charge of Sikich’s wealth management services. “Our group is committed to helping clients achieve their long-term financial objectives, and we are excited to offer our financial planning services to the legal community.”
