Family Business Succession Planning

Effective succession planning is more than just creating an updated Will; for clients with large and complex estates, you can make trust structures or family investment companies to help protect your wealth for the next generation.

Succession planning can ensure your children, grandchildren, and any other individuals with whom you have long-term relationships benefit from your estate when you pass away.

Myerson's team of expert succession planning solicitors can help individuals ensure their family members are included in future plans.

Benefits of succession planning include:

  • Help manage family expectations of what they will inherit.
  • Help the next generations manage a large inheritance.
  • Minimise inheritance tax on your assets.
  • Understand how to handle international assets.
  • Decide who will control your business.
  • Set aside a portion of your wealth for charity.
  • Plan for unforeseen circumstances, such as the loss of mental capacity.
  • Appoint chosen professionals to manage your assets and business interests.
