Business Succession Planning Lawyers
Our Business succession planning lawyers help to provide you with planning that will integrate your business interests into the other facets of your life, namely family estate planning, tax needs, and retirement planning. Succession planning is crucial for the investment of your future and the future of your business. Having a succession plan helps with your commitment to your business as its long-term growth as well as creates confidence within the business – and with clients, customers, and suppliers.
As business planning lawyers, our focus is on the design and implementation of a succession plan that will preserve your assets before and during any crisis that life can bring.
This is a multi-phase process and should start as soon as the business is formed. It is very likely that the first tasks will include creating or updating wills and trusts, and reviewing existing policies. Next steps include the drafting of Buy-Sell Agreements, reviewing compensation procedures, establishing an advisory board, and informing key people of the changes. Having a counsel of business planning players can help you to create something strong and effective. The team at James C. Provenza has the necessary skills and experience to help with your Chicago business planning.
We maintain close working relationships within many industries, including professionals who can help your continued success, such as accountants, bankers, and financial planners. Even more, we seek their advice for succession plans, business plans, and more.
