Ohio Business Succession Planning Attorneys

If you are a business owner, creating and building your business has been your life’s work, and you likely envision the business providing for your family into the future. Yet many smaller businesses do not survive a change in ownership, particularly if little succession planning has taken place. And while over ninety percent of American businesses are family-owned, fewer than thirty percent have a business succession plan in place.

Most people, when starting or building a business, don’t think about planning for a change in ownership down the road. Taking the time to do so, however, yields tremendous benefits in terms of both the business’s continued success, and peace of mind for the business owner and employees.
