Why Business Succession Planning Is Important 


Business succession planning is the use of estate planning strategies to implement a “survival” plan for a business if the owner needs an exit plan due to death, illness or retirement. As a business owner, you shouldn’t wait to develop a business succession plan if you want to see your business continue to run once you leave. At the Ward Arcuri Law Firm, we also know that business succession planning addresses a complicated combination of personal or business challenges and decisions such as… 

  • Being able to provide for your family and your business in case of a tragedy  
  • The family dynamics surrounding ownership and asset transfer
  • Having to prepare a business transfer to employees, heirs, or outside buyers   
  • Positioning the business for a profitable sale or merger
  • Ensuring continued business growth  
  • Securing your legacy in the community   
  • Or retaining enough assets to fund your retirement
