Business Succession Planning

We understand that the stakes are high when planning for the future ownership of your business.  The issues are often sensitive and complex and demand careful, intentional planning.

As a business owner, two of your greatest decisions are deciding when to step out of the family business and how to make the transition in a manner that honors the needs of the business and sets the next generation up for success.  However, the first and most important business succession planning decision is simply deciding to talk about it.

Those conversations are crucial. A successful transition requires both time and intention in working with your family, your company leaders and your trusted professional advisors. It requires identifying and developing next generation owners and leaders and developing and implementing a plan that aligns with your needs, the needs of the next generation and the needs of the company.  Successful transitions are what “legacy” is all about.
