Helping you design your successful exit and succession for your closely-held business!

Our Experience

After many years as corporate lawyers, we decided to highlight the practical side of realizing value (and, if necessary, amicably resolving conflicts) for business owners. We consider succession plans, individual exits and joint exits (by sale or other change of control) and your “encore.” Now, we share our passion by helping others. Our ramp up process is designed for your personal goals.

Why Us?

Business mentors are key—that’s why when it comes to client selection, we’re choosy. We want to give each of you the time and guidance you deserve.

For family-owned businesses, consider your succession plan and intergenerational transition plans.
