Pre Transaction Planning Event

Pre-Transaction Planning

February 10, 2016

7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.

Manchester, New Hampshire


Business and personal interests are often interconnected, so when the owner of a closely-held business is contemplating a sale, financial and legal advisors are powerful team members that can help identify and implement value-enhancing planning strategies for their entrepreneurial clients. 

In this two-part session, McLane Middleton and Baldwin & Clarke will discuss critically important pre-transaction considerations for owner-managers illustrating the importance of coordinating your personal and corporate planning.  

McLane Middleton’s legal experts will walk through the effective use of valuable planning vehicles (i.e. grantor-retained annuity trusts, charitable remainder trusts, asset protection trusts, ESOPs, etc.) for the achievement of a business owner’s personal, family, and charitable goals while Baldwin & Clarke’s financial specialists will share vital business preparation thoughts to both optimize value in a sale as well as mitigate the risk of a failed transaction. 

With the recognition of such an important milestone in a business owner’s life, McLane Middleton and Baldwin & Clarke’s pre-transaction preparation seminar is designed to provide a powerful roadmap for a successful, long-term business transition.

Presented in Partnership with:

Registration/Networking – 7:30 a.m.
