Closely Held Business Succession Planning 

One of the traditional strengths of Greensfelder has been its ability as a legal representative for entrepreneurs and owners of family businesses. Our Trusts & Estates attorneys draw on the experience of our colleagues in the Corporate and related Practice Groups in representing clients who own such business interests. We work with them on a variety of transactions which structure ownership of such businesses, and transfer ownership and control when the time is right, to appropriate family members or individuals all with the goal of preserving the wealth represented by such companies. We have extensive experience in preparing shareholder agreements dealing with succession and buy-out issues. We also help structure gifting strategies designed to minimize the potential tax imposed upon the death of a business owner, as well as techniques designed to minimize the potential for family conflict over management of a closely held business.
