Estate and Business Succession Planning

Assistance with Estate PlanningA properly structured estate plan not only greatly impacts the futures of your beneficiaries, but it also provides you with peace-of-mind that your spouse and children are all accounted for after you’re gone. In the same way, a well-defined succession plan ensures your business and legacy will be passed on to the next generation or transitioned to key employees. At LCS&Z, we can assist with the orderly transfer of your assets to beneficiaries, providing security for your surviving spouse and reducing or eliminating tax due on business and asset transfers.

Our professionals are focused on assuring a smooth transition for your assets and business affairs, while helping you define a strategic plan to meet your specific objectives. Whether you see your business transition as a retirement strategy, an investment that your family will benefit from for years to come, or a legacy to pass on to the community, our team can help you realize your goals with careful advance planning.
