Succession planning is an investment in the future of your business and family. By establishing and maintaining a comprehensive succession plan, you are maximizing the value of your business with or without you in the business. A business continuation plan communicates your commitment to your business’s long-term growth, creating confidence with your customers, suppliers, employees, and owners. Our team of business attorneys work with you to design and implement a business succession plan to preserve, optimize, protect and transfer assets to the desired persons before a crisis occurs.

Business Continuation Planning is a Team Approach

Successful business continuation planning involves the counsel of independent professionals who contribute objectivity, specialized skills, and experience. Our legal team works closely with experienced skilled financial planners, accountants, and bankers dedicated to assisting business owners in maximizing the value of their business and reaching their retirement goals. Once a succession plan has been established, it is necessary that the succession plan be periodically reviewed and updated as circumstances change.

Business Plan for Success

Business succession plans address in detail how changes in ownership, control and management are to be executed. Since each business owner’s concerns are unique, we work closely with our clients to identify goals, objectives, concerns, and optimal solutions. Business Succession Planning and wealth transfers require extensive knowledge and expertise. Multi-generational business planning requires experienced legal and tax planning techniques as well as a thorough understanding of the human dynamics involved in the management, control, and ownership of the business as well as intra-family matters. We work closely with our clients to develop a succession plan to avoid ownership and control disputes among family members and shareholders in the event of a business owner’s retirement or death. Once a plan has been developed and approved, our attorneys work closely with each client to implement those goals in a timely, cost effective and value added manner.
