SUCCESSION PLANNING

Planning for the Future of Your Business

Adequate business succession planning is the most effective and most important way to prevent a business and its owners from having to deal with control disputes upon retirement or death. Most business succession planning is related to those businesses that are family owned or where stock is closely held. When done properly, succession planning allows for a smooth transfer of ownership and management to heirs or other successors.

At the law firm of Jacobowitz and Gubits, LLP, we are committed to helping business owners develop effective business succession plans. Founded in 1968, we have handled many business succession plans for our clients, including those involving multi-family and multi-generational transfers. Our attorneys know how to recognize issues before they turn into larger problems down the line.
