Business Formation
A well-developed business succession plan is one of the most important factors in transitioning a family business from the older generations to a younger generation of management or selling the business to key employees or outside third parties if there are no family members in the business. The Kaiser Law Firm, P.C. provides strategies that help owners of closely held and family-owned businesses establish ways to help ensure that their business will continue to operate smoothly when they retire or die.

Approximately two-thirds (2/3) of family owned businesses fail to be passed on to the next generation. Of those that do, close to 50 percent do not survive the transition from second to third generation ownership. There are a number of reasons for this including:
  1. Estate taxes which may force a sale of the business;

  2. Family disharmony, lack of interest or experience;

  3. The failure to groom a “successor” to operate or purchase the business; and

  4. Unexpected disability of a key employee/owner, resulting in a forced sale to raise cash.


Business succession planning is an important part of any estate plan. The Kaiser Law Firm, P.C. strives to help our clients secure their legacy by developing a succession plan that provide for the continued operation of businesses they have spent years building
