Legal Foresight in Times of Uncertainty

As any business owner knows, tomorrow may be the polar opposite of yesterday. Nothing in the world of business is truly predictable. While this might show that choosing the best successor is difficult, it also speaks for all the reasons why making a plan sooner than later is so important.

There are several key components of a business succession plan, including:

  1. Choosing a successor: Your gut instinct might be to choose your second-in-command but, unless you have a business contract that says so directly, they are probably not guaranteed to become the boss when you leave the business. You have every right to choose someone else, like a trusted family member. Work closely with us and we can review your options and steer you towards the right choice.
  2. Business value: The worth of your business plays a huge part in your succession plan because you are entitled to a share of it when you leave. Make certain you get your fair profits when you decide to pass along the torch.
  3. Life insurance policies: Something that many business owners do not realize is that they may be leaving the business not by choice. Purchasing a life insurance policy for yourself or your successors can ensure that financial matters concerning the business will go smoothly in the unfortunate event of an unexpected passing.
  4. Buy-sell agreements: You may choose to create a plan for future sale of your business and outline how to smoothly transfer your business to the next owner.
