Representing your business succession needs

For an owner of a family business in the Fresno area, estate planning can have an extra layer of complexity. This is because these people have a lot of their wealth tied up in their business, which often also represents a lifetime of big dreams and hard work.

Getting ready to hand on a business to the next generation, or even to a friend or professional associate, entails a lot more than just naming a successor in one's will or trust document. As a previous post on this blog discussed, succession planning takes a lot of careful thought and involves making some big decisions.

Although these decisions have to be made, a business owner need not go at alone when doing so. Our law office stands ready to help Fresno business owners with their succession needs, knowing full well that it is never too early to start thing about the future. As attorneys who handle both estate planning and business law matters, we bring a unique perspective to table when it comes to helping our clients make sure their business transfers smoothly in to good hands.

In addition to doing the basic work of making sure the business will pass on to trustworthy people, we also help business owners understand the possible tax consequences they or their loved ones might face as a result and, when possible, try to come up with solutions that minimize these consequences. We offer other services and assistance as well, as even the best prepared people might still need some guidance when first taking over a business.
