Personalized assistance in the Dallas–Fort Worth area for small business succession planning
Privately owned firms, and family businesses in particular, often require special care with regard to business succession. Many entrepreneurs consider their small business to be a legacy for their children, but handing over the reins to an adult child or a sibling group is not always the best way to keep the business running. There are many pitfalls to mismanaged business succession:
- Loss of customer or client goodwill
- Drop-off of quality in goods and services
- Attrition among once-faithful employees
- Loss of focus and/or mission creep
These problems can be exacerbated when family issues intrude upon business operations.
By contrast, advance planning for business succession allows an owner to select the best talent to manage operations for the benefit of all stakeholders. Customers and clients have a period of adjustment during which they can become comfortable with new management and the new management learns what is necessary to maintain the business at its current level and grow it responsibly. A comprehensive business succession plan also provides retirement income for founders who can phase out their involvement at comfortable increments. Our experience in business formation as well as business litigation helps us craft business succession plans that create certainty for management and avoid ownership disputes now and in the future.
