Tough Conversations

Earned, Not Given.
How do you create equal opportunities, when some potential successors show more interest or aptitude than others? What about training? And what if the right person for a role isn’t the expected choice?

We’ve shown hundreds of clients that while these conversations are hard, they don’t need to be negative — if you start early, and carefully plan ahead.

Making Decisions

Work the Plan. Adapt to the Variables.
The most successful construction projects involve not only detailed planning and execution, but also the ability to adapt to the unexpected. Succession planning is no different.

Our experience will make succession planning less stressful, and more manageable, and prepare you for the best possible outcome.

Succession is a Process

Start Early with Expert Guidance.
Whether you want to complete the transition in twelve months or twelve years, it’s important to start considering the details as early as possible — with an experienced partner to guide you.

We can help you implement a variety of financial vehicles to maximize the value of the business, and minimize the hit from gift and inheritance taxes.
