Business Succession Planning

Family businesses often have intimate histories and complex cultures that are hard for outsiders to understand. Families today are more complicated and less traditional than they once were.  Family businesses have several other issues that work against the successful continuation of the business. Fortunately, with focus and planning, most of these can be easily overcome by paying attention to the details.  Your business is more than a job. It’s a part of you as much as you are a part of it. Schechter is here to help you leave a lasting legacy and ensure your business blossoms in the future with your vision.  From setting up a solid structure for a seamless transition, to contingencies management and techniques to mitigate estate taxes, our expertise can advise you on the many facets of business secession planning.
