The seasoned business law attorneys at Smith Simmons have the experience you need, and no matter your business-related issue, we can help you solve it.
An LLC, or limited liability company, is just one form of legal organization in which one or more persons conducts business. The LLC is owned by one or all members who either manage the business (known as a member-managed) or elect a manager to operate the business on the owners’ behalf (known as manager-managed).
Much like the purpose of a will or trust, a business succession plan is what will be enacted when a person passes on or retires. It dictates exactly what will happen to that person’s business and includes taxation, new ownership, new management procedures and more. Planning for the transfer of a business must be built into the process of business management. Thus, an integrated approach in dealing with retirement and estate planning is especially needed for business owners.
There are some key differences between public and private companies when it comes to succession, such as income tax, growth, access to capital, value and private capital markets, to name a few. Our lawyers are highly experienced in both business law and estate planning, so if you’re looking at the option of succession for your company, look no further than Smith Simmons.
