Succession Planning For Family-Owned Businesses

Many of our clients are business owners who have been very successful at working IN their businesses but who have neglected to work ON their business.  They are not alone:

Fact:  Approximately 90% of the 15 million businesses in the United States are owned and managed by families.  These businesses account for much of the gross national product.

Fact:  More than 150 of the Fortune 500 companies are actually owned and managed by families.

Fact:  More than two-thirds of family-owned businesses do not make it to the next generation.

We help our business owner clients beat these odds by working with them and their other advisors to create well crafted business succession plans and implement the proper legal structures to make them function effectively.
