Cavitch’s lawyers 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 a smooth transition of ownership from the older to the younger generation. The firm’s lawyers can help with the planning and implementation of a plan to move ownership of the business in ways that can involve one or more of a redemption, reorganization, sale or gifting of ownership interests. Because of their many years of representing closely-held business owners, the firm’s lawyers have a particular and creative expertise in the area of corporate succession planning.
