Advising on Succession

You’ve spent your life building up assets through your company or your profession that you want to preserve and increase for the long term. But who will get them when you’re gone? Long-term thinkers plan early on who will take over next in the company and in a personal estate.

Not just struc­tu­ring assets pro­perly, but plan­ning cor­rectly for suc­ces­sion rep­res­ents a stra­te­gic chal­lenge for a com­pany or estate, and a very per­so­nal mat­ter for any family. For a com­pany, it’s important to iden­tify the right suc­ces­sor. And suc­ces­sion to pri­vate assets has to be struc­tu­red as well as pos­si­ble, too. It’s not just a mat­ter of the right legal, tax, finan­cial and busi­ness con­di­ti­ons ­– family and inter­per­so­nal aspects also play an important role in plan­ning.
