Develop Your Business Succession Plan

As your business succession planning attorneys, Susan Eleff and her lawyers will work with you personally and take time to understand your specific needs. Depending on your business's structure and your vision for its future, your business succession plan may feature any of the following:

  • Estate planning documents to transfer ownership interests to a family member or another individual.
  • Cross-purchase agreements that allow business partners to purchase life insurance partners for each other. In the event that one partner dies, the proceeds of the policies would be used by the surviving partners to purchase the deceased's interests in the business.
  • Entity-purchase agreements through which the business purchases insurance policies on each partner. When a partner passes away, the business uses the insurance proceeds to purchase the deceased's share of the business.

The Eleff Law Group is committed to the success of her clients and to providing practical and cost-effective legal solutions customized to their unique needs. Contact the firm today to begin creating an effective plan for your company's future.
