Estate Planning Can Protect Your Company’s Future
Business law constantly interweaves with estate planning. We work with clients throughout Texas to create estate plans that address their personal estates and their business concerns.
Many of our estate planning clients are business partners or have family businesses. That ownership stake should be integrated into your estate plan, especially if your children may take over the business one day. We can help you implement strategies, including buy-sell clauses, family partnerships, LLCs or trusts to pass your business to the next generation with minimal probate hassle and tax exposure.
