Succession Planning and Implementation: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

November 17, 2016

Succession planning for a privately owned business requires special care. To meet the critical challenges posed by succession planning, owners of private businesses are often best advised to seek the assistance of independent counsel and wealth advisors to work with the company's regular and trusted professionals. In the mix of governance, tax and financial issues to consider, there are also personalities, talents and aspirations.

Telemus Capital and Dykema Gossett have unmatched experience in providing the expertise, perspective and judgment needed to address these challenges. It is a "second opinion" that owners and managers of private businesses need to invest in for everyone's benefit. You may only have one chance to get succession planning right. The benefits from getting it right are not simply financial but personal and long lasting.
