Business Succession Planning in New Jersey
Business succession planning is essential to the future of any business. That applies to the founders, owners and their families. The existence of a succession plan reflects the owners desire to see the business they’ve worked so hard to build over so many years, continue to grow and support their heirs for many years to come. Families require this kind of legal planning to assure the continuation of the business, establish future control of the business, and to maintain a profitable ongoing business entity.
Business Succession planning does not take place after the business owner is deceased, indeed by then it is too late. A succession plan is also initiated on the resignation, disability, retirement or withdrawal of a business owner or other major business stakeholder. You may wish to remove yourself from day to day operations without surrendering control of your business. These delicate legalities need to be put into writing by competent knowledgable attorney’s, signed by all involved, and filed with appropriate state and federal entities.
Common to smaller businesses is the concept of New Jersey closely held corporations. These typically involve a small number of shareholders and are common within family-owned and operated businesses. Due to the small number of shareholders, each member often assumes management responsibility on behalf of the company but when one member leaves there is inevitably a consolidation of responsibilities. Unless the plan here is legally documented, this situation can often lead to unique legal issues and infighting. These potential issues can be identified and addressed before things get contentious, as part of a well constructed, business succession plan.
For all these issues and more, the experienced attorney’s of SCC legal bring a compassionate, yet no-nonsense mindset to the understanding and execution of your business succession strategy. There is no better partner in northern NJ for your peace of mind, or that of your family.
