In every private or family held corporation, a critical time occurs when an organization and its employees encounter the issue of succession or change of control. The process of planning for succession can take anywhere from six months to a number of years, but the rewards of planning ahead will allow owners to capitalize on their investment when the organization is at greatest value.
Since every company is different, there is not a cookie cutter approach to the succession planning process. The initial planning process involves a thorough due diligence by a number of trusted advisors to determine an owner's specific short and long term goals pertaining to current and future lifestyle, family and philanthropic endeavors. Upon completion of due diligence, our clients are provided with a detailed exit and transitional plan which provides specific recommendations and action steps to maximize shareholder value.
