You’ve worked hard to grow your business.  We work hard to protect your business.

If you are like many of the business owners we counsel, you have invested years of hard work and personal resources in building something that now constitutes a sizable portion of your estate. For business owners, a comprehensive estate plan must also include an effective business plan. The two should work together to protect and maximize the value of your overall estate.

Your business plan must take into account the possibility of extraordinary growth, while at the same time protect against downturns in the economy or changes to the business climate. It also shields your personal and family’s assets if something happens to the business itself. A solid business plan ensures that you receive the greatest possible return on your initial investment. When you decide to transition out of the business it allows the business to continue thriving after your leadership role comes to an end.

At Wealth Planning Law Group, our New Orleans Business Planning Attorneys can design an effective business plan to help you at start-up, exit and at every stage in between. We understand that the best plans are the result of close collaboration, not just with you, the owner, but also your existing executives, CPAs, attorneys and other key advisors.
