It is never too soon to begin planning your pathway for a successful transition. Have you ever imagined transitioning from your business? Or daydreamed about selling your business? Where do you see your future? Over 80% of owners expect to transition from their business within the next 10 years.


There is a high rate of failure (70%) in family-owned business transitions to second-generation owners

When surveyed only 40% of business owners felt that their transition was successful

Do you know what your business is worth from a buyer’s perspective, and are you mentally and financially ready to make the change?

Have you done all that you can to make your business as successful as possible to ensure a healthy transition?

Don’t become one of these statistics – 100% of all businesses will go through a transition – we want yours to be as successful as it possibly can be.

With our focus on Internal Transitions Law, we have a range of tools that will help us quickly determine a number of key factors including how dependent the business is on you. Whether you are thinking about transitioning your business now or a decade from now it's never too early to plan for a successful transition.

When considering a transition we believe that planning should revolve around 3 key dimensions:

Your family - after all, they are the reason that you've worked so hard.

Your business - protecting your assets, maximizing their value, realizing that value,      and retaining it.

Your wealth - beyond the sale of your business is secure for many years to come.
