“My family is so pleased that we met Bryan. He made several trips to my parents’ home to restructure their estate plan and his advice regarding capital gains, property tax exemptions, and the estate tax was invaluable for my parents $20 million estate. He is truly a wealth of knowledge.”
“Bryan helped us collect several delinquent accounts receivable without filing a lawsuit and advised us regarding our deficient corporate contract forms. He is extremely skilled at getting to the root of an issue and is great at conveying to customers the true cost of not paying their bills.”
“Bryan set up a trust, private foundation, and power of attorney for me. His helpful suggestions and meticulous attention to my needs far exceeded my expectations. I was very pleased with the result.”

Business Succession Planning Services
Bringing Business Law & Estate Planning Together
Business Succession Planning is the creation of a business strategy to efficiently transfer ownership of a business in the event an owner is unable to fulfill their duties due to new opportunities, retirement, or death. Enlisting the services of an experienced business succession planning attorney helps ensure a smooth, and hopefully profitable, transition of power.
A study published by MassMutual in 2018 suggests business owners find it difficult to put aside time from the daily grind to plan for the success of their business once they’re gone. The study revealed, around 50% of business owners lack a formal succession plan. Of those with a plan in place, only about one in four potential successors are aware they are identified in a plan.
With the assistance of our knowledgeable business succession planning attorney, we will help you to form a strong transition plan. The first step is answering some key questions.
Is this a family business? When it’s time for you to step down, or you become unable to continue running the business, should the business stay in the family? Should a spouse or child be chosen as your successor? Do they have the knowledge and ability to run the business? Should they be bought out instead?
Who should be the next operating manager? If not a family member, is there an employee or group of employees who should take your place? Can you bring them on as a partner now to prepare them for the coming responsibility?
What should happen if you’re temporarily incapacitated? Who has the authority to make decisions for your company if you become incapacitated?
What is the value of your business? If you or your family are to be bought out of the company, how much is that worth? Leaving emotions aside, what is a fair deal?
By answering these questions with a trusted business succession planning attorney, you can begin to build a strong plan for the future of your business.
