Business Succession Planning

Mapping the Future.

Husch Blackwell counsels owners of privately held businesses as they contemplate reducing their involvement in daily operations and creating liquidity. Understanding the issues and emotions that often arise in these transitions, we provide holistic guidance that helps clients identify their succession goals and how best to accomplish them.

Our experienced team of attorneys includes authorities in organizational structure, gift and estate planning, taxes, compensation strategies, employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs), and mergers and acquisitions. Our personalized approach helps clients make smart succession decisions that benefit the owner, the family, the company and valued employees.
