Ohio Business Division After Death Lawyer
Thorough estate planning is a matter of making important decisions in the present that will provide for needs and prevent problems in the future, whether these needs concern spouses, children, grandchildren, charities or businesses. Business succession planning is an important area that requires an attorney to have a comprehensive understanding of both estate law and business law.
At Godbey & Associates, our attorneys provide strategic business succession planning services to business owners and their families in the Cincinnati area.
Protect What You Have Worked Hard For
If you have worked to build a business and you want its success to continue after your retirement, death or divestment, consult one of our experienced lawyers. We can help you take the necessary steps to make sure your objectives are met and your wishes are honored with respect to:
- Ownership and leadership: We can help you plan for a new ownership and management structure when you and/or your partners cease to be involved with the business. This succession may involve your family or your employees, or both, and it may require special employment agreements or shareholder agreements.
- Sale of your business: We can help you prepare your business for sale to employees, family members or third parties, and we can structure buy/sell agreements that will optimize what you and your family receive.
- Business valuation: The value of a small business or family business is highly subjective and can be difficult to determine. With the assistance of outside experts such as accountants and industry specialists, our attorneys can facilitate appropriate valuation of your business for succession purposes.
