Hunter Business Law guides business owners and their spouses to develop, implement and revise, as needed, estate plans that integrate as intended with asset protection and business succession planning. We work closely with your accountant, financial advisor, insurance agent and other advisors to make sure we take a strategic approach to meeting your unique needs.
It can be both difficult and intimidating to plan for the future, but a little bit of planning ahead of time can save your heirs from utter uncertainty as to your wishes or, worse yet, years of litigation. Many people neglect issues associated with death and incapacity, planning for every other kind of contingency, but when an unexpected event occurs, their legacy and life’s work building a valuable business can be left in chaos.
Even the most caring business owners will often fail to consider how their family’s and employees’ lives will be damaged by their failure to prepare for involuntary events. And if you’re about to raise capital, investors will likely want to know how the company will cope with the death of a founder and will often request that key man life insurance be secured and terms be agreed upon that enable the Company to buy-out the founder’s estate that inherits Company stock.
At Hunter Business Law, we offer a holistic planning approach for business owners, making sure that personal estate planning matches up with asset protection and business succession planning. We work closely with clients’ tax and financial advisors to sculpt a comprehensive plan.
