Business Succession

Planning for the future of your business is an essential part of any business owner’s long-term vision. With proper succession planning, you can eliminate stress and financial difficulties in the transfer of ownership or management of a company and help to preserve the company name, foundation and value.

At Cohen Seglias, we work with business owners of all sizes to create succession plans through legal contracts such as business continuation agreements or buy-sell agreements, which provide terms for the distribution of a business interest in the event of the owner’s death, disability, retirement or planned withdrawal, this includes appropriate plan documents.

  • Determine a proper successor – Deciding who will be the heir of the business can be a tough process, whether it is a family member, current or future employee, friend, or outside buyer, we can help weigh the options to make the best possible decision.
