Business Succession

Succession can mean many things. It can be the progression or transfer of ownership within a family, the current owner group or the sale of the business or asset externally.

There are several key issues to consider.

  1. That value is retained and enhanced.
  2. Predictable processes are in place to minimise conflict or, at the very least, provide a mechanism to resolve issues.
  3. That the passing on of value is recognised and of benefit to both the person who is stepping away or back from the ownership or control of the business, as well as to the person who is stepping into that role.

We have a deep understanding of the commercial and legal issues in play. Just as importantly, we understand the often intensely personal aspects of business succession which demands empathy, respect and objectivity from us so as to ensure that the process and the transition is positive and that the outcome works for everyone.
