Business Succession Planning

Business succession planning can be deeply emotional. With forethought and CLA by your side, you can address a complex mix of personal and business challenges and aspirations.

Together we’ll create opportunities

Imagine your desk with someone else sitting at it. That person could be someone you have chosen, trained, and trust. Or it could be someone you’ve never met. Our experienced team can help you, your family, and your employees prepare for the seamless transition of your business.

We’re committed to addressing what matters most to you:

  • Providing for your family and your business in the case of a tragedy
  • Family dynamics surrounding asset and ownership transfer
  • Preparing for a successful business transfer to employees, heirs, or outside buyers
  • Positioning the business for a profitable sale or merger
  • Promoting continued business growth
  • Securing your legacy in the community
  • Retaining enough assets to fund your retirement

Begin thinking about how you might discover what’s next and pursue it with passion.
