Business Succession

In general, we aid with the development of plans that provide for transition in management – often to a family member (e.g. son or daughter) or to another shareholder; maximize cash or income in retirement or to a surviving spouse, while minimizing taxation; and, provide an opportunity for our clients to exit or stay involved in their business as they see fit.
