Business Formation and Succession Planning

Part of a comprehensive business plan is determining what is to become of your business in the event of your death, incapacity, retirement, or sale. By establishing detailed business succession plans, it is possible to preserve the integrity of your business for family or key employees, even if you are not a part of the business’s future.

Our lawyers and staff at the law firm of Knowles & Associates P.C. in Carmel, Indiana, have been combining estate planning with business formation and succession planning to individual and business clients since our establishment. We are aggressive advocates for our business clients because we have seen many businesses fail to continue into the next generation for lack of  sufficient or adequate succession planning.

Whether you are planning to pass the business on to a child or key employee, we are able to advise you on your options for transferring the business or business assets. Our firm is also able to draft buy/sell agreements and other contracts that may need to be created, reviewed, and signed throughout the course of planning for your business. We also provide legal guidance with respect to the use or acquisition of life insurance and/or disability buy-out insurance to provide the funds to make the business succession plan work!

Your business is important to us, as it is to you. Our team can utilize our experience and knowledge of business matters to advise you on the best way in which to preserve your business and/or assure the prospective future purchases of its actual acquisition.
