Business Succession Peoples Serving the Seattle Area
The successful transition of a family-owned business to new owners requires attorneys with a unique set of business law and estate planning skills.
We help business owners and families plan for and accomplish business successions. With extensive experience in estate planning, business law, commercial real estate, and other relevant matters, we have the abilities needed to provide the advice and services needed to accomplish a business succession.
The Importance Of Planning
While it is never too late to begin the business succession process, planning ahead can provide many benefits and help you prevent potential problems from arising.
We work closely with business owners in a full range of estate planning and estate tax minimization matters. For over 20 years, we have advised these clients and helped them develop individualized business succession plans for family-owned and closely-held companies. Our goal in every case is to plan for and achieve a transition with a structure that maintains its viability and continued profitability.
Helping Ensure A Successful Transition From Start To Finish
Our attorneys can provide guidance and services throughout the entire business succession process. We can help you determine the optimal structure for the business (including a family limited partnership, trust or other business entity), prepare all documents and handle any related commercial real estate issues.
From the initial planning stage to the drafting of the buy-sell agreement to the final closing, we will work to achieve a smooth and successful transition to new ownership.
