Business Succession Planning
An often overlooked area of business law is that of succession planning: put simply, who takes over when you retire, or are no longer around to run the business? The law requires clear and definite instructions on this, and at FULMER | MAY | STUCKEY – Alabama attorneys – we have a team of lawyers who can help you draft a workable business succession plan.
For example, you may have plans to pass the business on to a member of the family. We can draw up an agreement that avoids conflict or litigation. Or, you may wish to just sell the business. In that case, the law also needs to be adhered to, and tax requirements must be met. You could even be looking at putting together an ESOP. That’s where employees are given the opportunity to purchase the business.
All of these require the application of the law, careful planning, and the assistance of a professional lawyer who will be able to minimize tax impact while ensuring all transactions are within the law. Careful planning is certainly required for this aspect of business law, so reach out and talk to a lawyer now. Make sure the transition of the ownership of your business will be as smooth and painless as it can be.
