Business Planning

Home > Practice Areas > Estate Planning and Trusts > Business Planning

If you own a business of any kind, it’s probably one of your greatest assets. It also means your business needs a succession plan – and one that is consistent with your family’s estate plan. What would happen to your business if something happened to you? Would your loved ones know what to do? Would your business partners know what to do? Would they agree on everything?

Many times, we find these answers are rarely discussed or addressed, though they are very easy to work through. We specialize in guiding business owners through a plan that works for them and ensures peace of mind given any contingency.

Your Business – Your Aspiration

Once your business entity is incorporated and online with agreements, insurance, intellectual property planned for and protected, and financial systems filling the coffers, we shift the conversation away from set-up to the all-important exit. It will be an ongoing conversation throughout the life of your business – what can we do today to ensure that your business can and will continue to serve up your particular brand of goodness whether you are on vacation, taking a health break, after its sold or when you pass it on to loved ones after you are gone.

We work with our business clients on:

  • Entity Selection & Formation
  • Contract Preparation & Review
  • Buy-Sell Agreements
  • Keyman Insurance
  • Shareholder, LLC Operating & Partnership Agreements
  • Exit and Succession Planning Strategies

If you have a business, we’ll help you make sure you’ve fully separated personal and business assets. Furthermore that you are using your business entity properly to ensure that any business activities are kept within your business entity and that you have us review any personal guarantees before you sign something that could create personal liability for you. Business protection cannot take place after something happens. It must be set up ahead of time to be effective and so it must happen now if you want to get set up right.

Our Approach to Estate Planning

It’s a great question, and one that you should be asking if you are serious about doing estate planning. To understand how we’re different, you need to understand how “traditional” estate planning works.
