Succession Planning

Far too often we see great business fall apart due to a lack of a solid succession plan. The importance of planning for the unexpected, or even the expected, cannot be overstated when it comes to a small business. We have seen many businesses fail when a member dies unexpectedly, or a partner decides to pursue a different opportunity. Putting an exit strategy and a succession plan in place is critical to the long-term survival of the business. Protect your investment and lay out a plan for the future of your organization with our full suite of services. Here MZ Law can be a one-stop shop, addressing both your business and estate planning needs.
We know what we know, and what we don’t. We work with your financial advisors and accountants to give your succession plan the best chances of success. If you don’t have an advisor, we’d be happy to make a referral.
