Business Succession And Exit Strategies

The purchase or sale of a business entity is a transaction that, if not properly handled, can cause potentially fatal disruptions. Many factors must be considered and accounted for to ensure that an owner or owners are able to seamlessly leave a business while a new owner or owners assume responsibility for the health of the business.

At Courey, Kosanda & Zimmer, P.A., we are a team of highly experienced attorneys who understand the level of attention needed to make sure a business transition to a new owner goes seamlessly and is done right. We proudly represent buyers and sellers in these transitions and we handle all types of successions and purchases including but not limited to:

  • Business successions to family members
  • Transitions to existing owners of the company
  • Partner to partner transitions
  • Sales to parties or entities outside of the business
  • Employee ownership transformations

Preparations for ownership transitions can benefit from detailed planning. We help business owners realize their goals for the succession of their business, whether that situation is one meant to benefit family members, partners or some other party. We can help business owners lay the groundwork for an ownership transition that:

  • Is seamless
  • Preserves value
  • Maintains existing business
