Cavitch attorneys often represent individuals and families engaged in the ownership and operation of a wide variety of businesses. Those businesses are conducted in many different forms of entity, including, partnerships, corporations, (both C and S corporations), and limited liability companies. Frequently, that representation involves assisting the clients with respect to smooth transition of ownership from the older to the younger generation. Cavitch attorneys can help with the planning and implementation of a plat to move ownership of the business in ways that can involve one or more of a redemption, reorganization, sale or gifting of ownership interests.
Cavitch attorneys have many years of representing closely-held business owners and have a particular and creative expertise in the area of corporate succession planning.
