Continuing Your Legacy through Business Succession Planning
Your business is a significant part of your legacy. Whether the business is intended to remain in the family or sold to new owners upon your retirement, your stamp is forever attached to the business you have built.

Succession planning helps to ensure that a smooth transition can occur when youre ready to retire or sell your business. We believe succession planning should include the long-term goal of retirement, but should also focus on multi-generational planning, and contingency planning to protect against unexpected events.

We can assist you in developing a succession planning strategy that seeks to help you: 

  • Time your exit to maximize value (eliminating the risk of a fire sale)
  • Ensure continuity of service for your clients or customers
  • Provide for an efficient transfer of business to a successor or buyer of your choosing
  • Retire on your schedule
  • Remove emotional decision-making
  • Provide career-path opportunities to existing associates and/or elevate key employees to owners
  • Coordinate with your personal estate plan to minimize estate taxes
  • Plan for the unexpected
