Family Business and Succession Planning

Any time that a significant part of a family's net worth is tied to the family business, many extremely important and sensitive issues lurk in the background that need to be recognized and handled.  Our attorneys are particularly skilled at doing just this.  Consistent with our focus on providing comprehensive legal advice to our closely held business clients, we regularly address estate planning issues for these business owners.  Our intimate familiarity with our clients’ businesses (and, often times, family dynamics) allows us to assist in the preparation of estate and succession plans, which enable smooth transitions of the businesses and assets to the next generation.  This same intimate familiarity also allows us to continue to be a valuable resource during the transition and for the next generation for years to come.
