Business Succession Planning
Estate planning not only protects your family after you have passed on, it should also include what is necessary to maintain the operation of your small or medium business. Having a succession plan for your business will ensure the values your company embodied are kept beyond your time. This is why it is important that you have an experienced attorney guard your wishes.
Why should you have a Succession Plan?
Having a business succession plan is like having a will for your professional family, or your business entity. It can ensure that your business passes to family members, close friends or business partners as you intended. Having a clear plan of succession will also avoid any litigation, should an ownership dispute arise. It can also ensure that any contracts that were made during your ownership are honored as you intended.
