Exit and Succession Planning

succession planning

At Scott Porter, CPA, we believe it's never too early to start preparing for the longevity of a law firm so we offer exit and succession planning services for lawyers and attorneys. The goal of succession planning is to develop an effective business exit strategy either through the sale of the business or through a transition to other family members. The process is highly customized and is designed to attain very specific, personal goals of the current owner.

If your primary goal is to sell the practice for your retirement, our team of succession planning experts can help. We’ll work with you to define your goals, identify the financial strengths and weaknesses, and develop a plan to maximize the value of your law firm. If your goal is to keep the practice in the family, we can assist you with identifying and preparing a successor, minimizing gift taxes, and insurance planning. With our guidance and support, succession planning can be a financially rewarding and pleasant experience.
