Succession Planning

The drive and commitment it takes to create and grow successful businesses should not be underestimated. That’s why it’s vital to ensure that your business continues to thrive when you decide the time has come to step aside.

Business succession doesn’t mean you won’t remain in some way financially and emotionally involved with your businesses. We’ll help you think about how you see the future of your business and take a strategic view of what should happen to it in years to come.

Our lawyers can help you to:

  • Plan for growth – through mergers and acquisitions or through to expansion into other countries
  • Identify an appropriate successor as early as possible
  • Make any informal business agreements (e.g. ownership of assets) part of the succession planning process

Whatever your wishes, we can ensure that your assets are protected and managed the way that you want when you’re no longer running things.

Protecting Your Personal Assets

As well as creating a Will that expresses your wishes for your assets after your death, you should also consider what happens to your business and the wealth created by it when you’re no longer here.

Our Private Wealth solicitors can help you create asset-holding structures that includes suitable governance arrangements, leaving no room for ambiguity or dispute between children and other family members when the time comes to pass them on.

We can also help with cross-border succession issues and assist with questions, issues and administration arrangements relating to forced heirship rules and Sharia law.
