Succession consulting: Actively shaping your company’s future
As one of the greatest challenges faced by owner-managed firms, business succession calls for long-term proactive planning and very timely preparation. A tailored succession plan is geared to the specific structure of the business concerned and the individual circumstances and goals of its owners. Successful business succession is one of those life choices where there is rarely a second chance. This makes it all the more important to obtain far-sighted, comprehensive succession advice from an interdisciplinary team of tax advisors, lawyers and valuation experts. Our interdisciplinary consulting approach therefore centres on taking company law, inheritance law and family law questions into account along with business considerations and the optimum use of tax structuring options.

Business valuation: What is your company worth?

Acquisitions or disposals, corporate succession or a change of control, arbitration agreements, settlements or inheritances: There are many reasons for having a business valued, but what counts every time is that the outcome must be well substantiated and verifiable.

We sit down with you to identify the value drivers in your business, assess the opportunities and risks of onward developments, and model plausibly derivable future expectations.
