Buy/Sell Agreements & Succession Planning

Even as you create your business, it is important to plan to cede control. Perhaps you want to sell the company and move onto another venture or maybe you would like to hand it off to the next generation.

At Morton & Gettys we can help with either situation. We have assisted countless businesses in these transitions. It is a topic that touches on many areas of the law, including transactions, contract and even estate planning. Our business attorneys are poised to offer advise and assistance in all the areas involved.

These include:

  • Buy/sell agreements
  • Deferred compensation agreements
  • Transfer through trusts
  • Tax issues
  • Ownership structure
  • Advance directives

It is never too early to start thinking about business succession planning. Many companies, in fact, put provisions in place from the start and revise them over the years as situations change. And situations will change, sometimes due to shifting financial goals or sometimes in the unfortunate event that a business owner becomes incapacitated.

The experienced business attorneys at Morton & Gettys can help you with shorter-term buy/sell agreements and also with long-range succession planning. We will partner with you and your company for as long as you need us, ensuring that your business is taken care of, now and in the future.
