Minimizing Uncertainty In Business Succession Planning

Without a comprehensive business succession plan in place, the transition of business ownership after the death, retirement or departure of a key operator of the business, can hinder the growth and success of the business. Our comprehensive business succession planning services are tailored to provide for a smooth transition while limiting disruption to the flow of business. Focused on asset protection and business preservation, our business succession planning services include:

  • Negotiating and drafting buy-sell agreements that set forth specific procedures for the succession of a business, including setting specific occurrences that cause the agreement to activate.
  • Creating a family limited partnership or limited liability company to facilitate the transfer of shares and other business interests to family members or heirs with minimal tax consequences.

A Comprehensive Range of Services

In addition, our business succession planning services include addressing potential exit strategies, business restructuring, and mergers, acquisitions or sales, particularly intra-family sales. When necessary, CPS&S advises clients on planning for the valuation, transfer or disposition of intellectual property assets of the business. CPS&S also provides a full-service estate planning and administration practice that can facilitate any other estate planning needs of business professionals.
