Golkow, founder of Golkow Business Law LLC, brings to his clients more than 35 years of experience practicing business, finance and securities law, with more than 20 years at large, prestigious Philadelphia law firms.

The firm’s practice focuses on business acquisitions and divestitures, joint ventures and strategic alliances, capital-raising transactions, employment and compensation arrangements and a wide array of commercial matters.

Curt Golkow may be best known for his handling of “business divorce” matters. He serves as a strategist in litigation and pre-litigation stages, and in the vast majority of cases successfully negotiates a buy-out on favorable terms—without litigation. From his extensive experience in business divorce cases, Curt has developed a unique approach to helping business owners adopt well conceived “pre-nuptial” agreements for their business marriage and avoid costly disputes.


Curt Golkow serves as outside general counsel and a trusted advisor to his clients, often becoming an integral part of the management team, helping clients confront their legal and business challenges. Clients call on Curt not only for his legal advice but for his business acumen and strategic insight.


For matters requiring a multi-disciplinary approach, Curt Golkow assembles a team of talented lawyers – not limited to any one law firm, but from other firms both within the Philadelphia area and elsewhere – that are particularly suited for the task at hand. Curt also regularly assists clients in accessing financing sources and connecting with experienced accountants, tax experts, valuation specialists, wealth advisors, insurance brokers, turnaround managers and other professionals.5
