Anyone considering the sale or acquisition of a business faces a variety of complex tax and legal issues. Our network of attorneys, tax and deal experts can be a huge asset to ensuring that the acquisition process runs smoothly and that pre- and post- succession planning is an important aspect of the process. An exit strategy is a fundamental building block to making the decision to sell a mid-market Internet Company or technology asset. The exit can be structured years in advance and is designed to position the company and its ownership to achieve their economic goals and provide business continuity. Dynamic by nature, it should remain flexible enough to adjust to any changes in the business environment and/or economic conditions, as well as the key personnel in place to carry out the plan. Because the succession plan often involves various aspects of multi-generational ownership, it is essential that tax, business, and estate planning considerations are taken into account at all levels of ownership to minimize the consequences of transfer and maximize the benefits to be achieved.
Integrating a broad-based knowledge of tax, business, and sophisticated estate planning and asset protection techniques, along with business and entrepreneurial insight, our team of experts are uniquely qualified to help provide succession planning for companies at any stage in the cycle, especially during the transition to new ownership.
Together with our team of experts, we provide comprehensive and wide-ranging representation, always with an eye on the future and helping our clients understand what it will take to get there; many times including the sensitive, but inherent, intergenerational conflicts that may arise on the way.
