If you own a business and have not put together an effective estate plan, you want a lawyer who can help you plan for the continuation of your business in the event of your death or disability. Without a well-thought-out and organized plan, your heirs may have uncertainty about their roles, or they may engage in disputes regarding how the business will be handled.

Our Business Succession Planning Practice
We work closely with small business owners and their families, helping them identify and implement strategies to keep business operations going during and after times of transition, including the retirement or death of a key owner or participant. We will carefully explain the different strategies involved in business succession planning, including:
- The creation of a family trust
- The use of life insurance
- The transfer of business interests through lifetime gifting
- The effective use of estate planning documents
Though we can help you put the specific measures in place to address your concerns about business succession, one of the key roles we play in succession planning is to provide you with an understanding of your options and to walk you through the process. We can help you engender trust in your plans by bringing in potential heirs as officers or employees of your business, so that they can learn the details of your business, and know what to do in your absence.
