Estate planning is a necessary step to leave your legacy and to ensure your assets end up where you want them. This process not only involves planning for end of life matters, such as preserving one’s estate or making decisions about property distributions, but it also involves lifetime asset management, such as tax and insurance planning, trusts, or lifetime gifts. Our attorneys will advise you on a full range of succession and planning options, relying on extensive experience to create a personalized estate plan to suit your individual goals and desires.
In the unfortunate event that you are unable to make important financial or medical decisions for yourself, clients should also complete powers of attorney and healthcare directives as part of their estate plan. Although this can be a difficult topic, these documents will eliminate uncertainties about how you desire your assets and medical care to be managed in the event you are unable to.
WHC also advises partnerships, limited liability companies, and corporations on their succession plans. Importantly, succession planning not only provides for the continuation of business after death, but it can benefit your business now, but fostering the next generation of leaders. Proper business succession planning requires sound preparation, and the attorneys at WHC can assist your business in preparing and completing a smooth and equitable transition of corporate interests.
