Sale of a Family Business: Best Practices & Costly Pitfalls to Avoid

When a family sells its business, the overlap between business and family can unearth unexpected challenges. Proactive succession planning that navigates best practices and costly pitfalls can keep both the business and the family on track. This webinar will highlight fundamental differences between preparing the business for a third-party sale and grooming it for a NextGen transition. Both approaches require time and planning to achieve the best outcomes. The paths are quite different, so knowing where your business is headed can make all the difference in the range of benefits your family receives after the transaction.

In this webinar, Whittier Trust’s Senior Vice President Matthew W. Markatos, CFA, and Vice President Elizabeth M. Anderson, CEPA, along with Family Business Magazine’s Publishing Director, David Shaw, cover the benefits and pain points of selling a family business and how waiting to prepare can be an unnecessary risk.
