Business Succession | Exit


Washington, D.C. Business Succession Planning Attorney

Taking Control of the Inevitable

Eventually, you will leave your business. Every business owner does. Unfortunately, too many successful businessmen make the mistake of not planning for the inevitable, taking everything they have built over a lifetime of hard work and leaving it up to chance.

At the Law Offices of John E. McCullough, we help clients throughout the Washington, D.C. Metro Area take control of the inevitable through clear and orderly business succession planning. We will determine what you need to get out of your business and attain the lifestyle you want, and will then pair you with a team of professionals to create and implement your exit plan.

Helping You Think Through Your Priorities

Here is a rather disturbing fact: Over 90% of U.S. businesses are owned by families, but less than one-third of them are successfully passed on from one generation to the next. Knowing this, ask yourself this question: What do you want for your future, your family and your business?

Still thinking? That’s understandable. It is not an easy question to answer. Here is how we can help you find an answer and get to exactly where you want to be:

  • We will discuss your priorities. What do you want from your business? Do you want to monetize it? Sell it to employees or a third party? Pass it on to your children? Answering these questions will be crucial to creating a successful exit plan.
  • Once we know your goals, we will create a team of professionals to help you create a an exit plan tailored to yourneeds. We will draw upon the knowledge and experience of accountants, insurance agents, financial experts and specialists in mergers and acquisitions.
  • We will execute your plan. It is one thing to draw up a plan, it is quite another to actually carry it out. We will ensure that each part of your business succession plan is implemented by coordinating with each professional of your team.

Perhaps you already have some business advisors but not a whole team, or you have a team, but you need a projectmanager to oversee it all. We can assist you with exit planning in any of these situations.
