Customized Succession Planning Services

Lassiter & Sperati, PLLC, has served North Carolina residents since 1908. With strong business law experience, we can carefully evaluate your business to develop an individualized plan with maximum benefit. There are many options for creating a succession plan, including:

  • Creating a buy-sell agreement
  • Selling your portion of the business outright or with private annuities
  • Establishing an irrevocable trust
  • Transferring business ownership through a limited partnership

Each of these options is accompanied by distinct benefits and drawbacks. Depending upon your business structure and succession goals, we can confidently recommend and implement your best option.

Early Planning Can Prevent Pitfalls

You may anticipate running your business for many years to come, but this does not mean that you can delay the succession planning process. Unexpected partner disputes, early retirements or incapacitation can occur and risk the health of your business. You should determine a plan years before you anticipate implementation.
