Business Succession Planning Lawyer


Business Succession Planning Lawyer

Whether you operate a small family business or have an ownership interest in a corporation, putting a clear, legally sound succession plan in place may be a very important step. Should you or a partner pass away, become incapacitated or simply decide to retire, such a plan can prevent disarray and painful, costly disputes.

Clear Legal Counsel For Asset Protection And Prevention Of Disputes

At the law office of Kevork Adanas P.C., a skilled Fort Lee business succession planning attorney will engage with you, ask the right questions, and help ensure your wishes involving the future of your New Jersey or New York company are properly documented. Key components of your succession agreement can establish, specifically and in a legally binding fashion:

  • Who will move into positions of ownership, leadership and control of the business as well as the roles of others involved and interested parties
  • Whether the business should be sold or otherwise have its assets liquidated rather than staying in operation
  • Valuation of partners' and family members' shares in a business for purposes of a buyout or distribution of proceeds if the company will be sold

We are proven issue spotters adept at presenting a range of sound legal options for accomplishing your goals. Although forms and templates for business succession agreements are available from various online services, we believe personal attention and conscientious counsel in this area is essential. No one at our firm will try to sell you services you do not need.

General Counsel

Are expensive, full-time in-house counsels draining your business financially? Although you may not mind paying high prices when you are in the midst of a lawsuit, you should be able to get the day-to-day legal matters of your business taken care of without paying an arm and a leg. In-house General Counselors can often command large salaries, with stock options and other perks to boot.

If you need to minimize these expenses, we can provide you with a cost-effective alternative to an in-house counsel. Our program allows you to have your own legal counsel at your disposal ― who will be at your beck and call on an ‘as needed basis' ― but without the high cost. We get to know your business, so that we can match our highly qualified attorney with your business. The result is that we successfully and effortlessly manage your company's legal matters, so that you can focus on what's really important ― building your business and achieving your goals.
