Ownership Transition

Whether you are considering transferring your business to family members, structuring a long-term incentive plan for key employees, forming an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP), or an outright sale of the business, a number of issues require careful consideration and have long-term implications for your business, your family, and your estate.

Succession Planning

A critical element of succession planning is the business valuation, which can have a significant impact on a range of issues, such as gift and estate taxes, structuring shareholder agreements, or assessing strategic alternatives, such as the timing of a liquidity event. By focusing on the value of the business, business owners can create a successful long-term succession plan, avoid potential conflicts among family members, and align corporate and shareholder objectives.

Disputes / Litigation

Shareholder disputes can be highly sensitive and complex. Reaching agreement between the parties regarding valuation can be particularly challenging. Under these circumstances, the determination of company value requires an enhanced analysis of the business and the actions of employees and shareholders. It is critical to retain experts that not only have a broad range of analytical and investigative skills, but who also bring the ability to build a compelling, independent case and credibly testify.
