Buckley Fine attorneys know what it takes to successfully transition a business. Determining who will take over upon retirement, disability or death can be daunting, especially if there is no natural successor. Their skilled business succession attorneys will work with you to create a plan and guide you through the process.

Whether selling to a co-owner, key employee, third party or your family, they can facilitate a successful change in ownership that reduces stress and maximizes results. Whether you are planning to sell or buy now, or looking to create a plan for the future, their sophisticated business attorneys will work to meet your goals.

The Buckley Fine team proactively addresses all aspects of the business succession planning, including identifying the successor, the timeline, tax consequences, income needs, business valuation, payment of the purchase price, potential continued employment, as well as how it may affect your lifestyle, estate planning and intended beneficiaries. Addressing these together reduces the potential for unintended consequences and increases the likelihood of success, both during the transition and after the business changes hands.

Buckley Fine’s attorneys handle sophisticated and complex business succession plans and can apply their collective knowledge and experience to help you.
