Benenati Law Firm, P.C. has substantial experience in the area of business planning. We provide a wide range of services to private and public corporations, individuals, partnerships, limited liability companies, and charitable institutions. We assist clients in the integration of business planning techniques and estate planning by providing advice on the tax and non-tax issues attendant to the transfer of family businesses, including capital structure reorganizations, buy-sell arrangements, gift programs, and valuation issues.
For many of our clients, we frequently fill the role of "outside general counsel" for their business matters. In this role, we assist clients in their income, estate and gift tax planning, including succession planning in order to help them protect and preserve their wealth. We often are called upon to help business owners plan for the eventual transfer of the business to family members, employees, or a third party. We have worked with companies to develop appropriate strategies (e.g., outright sale of the business, recapitalization, gift programs, employee stock option plans, and shareholder agreements). We also help you maintain the business in good standing with the Secretary of State.
