Succession planning is vitally important to the survival of a family business beyond the retirement or lifetime of the current owner(s). It requires sensitivity to relationships among family members, a realistic assessment of the capabilities of potential owners and managers and careful attention to applicable business law rules and tax laws.
This teleconference will focus on the following:
- Determining whether succession within the family is appropriate
- Considerations involving children who are active in the business and those who are not
- Designing trust provisions governing the administration and disposition of business interests
- Anticipating and handling owners’ and children’s marital issues
