Portland Business Succession Planning Law Firm
Oregon Closely Held Corporation Attorney
When you own or operate a successful business, it is critical to have a succession plan in place, especially if the company is closely held. This means any company held by a family or small group of controlling directors and officers. When a closely-held corporation passes to second, third or fourth generations, the transfer of control, as well as the transfer of assets, can be complex and contentious. A well-designed business succession plan can minimize the conflict, as well as the stress and anxiety, experienced by those you leave behind.
At the Mead Law Firm P.C., we have advised businesses and business owners for more than 25 years, handling all legal matters encountered by business entities, including the transfer of ownership and control. We bring large law firm experience to clients in a small law office setting. When you work with us, all matters in your case will be handled by a lawyer. We strive at all times to be accessible when you have questions or concerns.
