Dealing early with possible succession scenarios might help you on a personal level to step successfully one day. In many cases the professional and private surroundings will be relieved as well. Experience shows that it`s never too early to analyze the situation and set the course for the future. We can help you make the best decisions from an economic, fiscal and legal prospect.
Succession planning includes a multiplicity of essential questions, which have to be answered carefully. Most companies are still handed over within the family from one generation to another. However, a similar number of firms is sold to external parties. Internal take-overs are seen with increasing frequency as well. It is a unique process in an entrepreneur`s life that should not be left to chance. With a careful analysis of the overall situation, our experienced experts will put you on the safe side and enable you to make a decision in a way that will prove to be right - for you and your company.
