Selling Your Business/Succession Planning

A Personal Matter For Owners

Forming a business, conducting transactions, raising capital, entering into agreements, and managing relationships with employees, business partners and customers — all of these are examples of the "typical" kinds of legal services business-oriented law firms provide to clients. Only rarely, however, does any of this ordinary work involve personal considerations. For the most part, it's all strictly business.

Selling a business or creating an ownership succession plan to transfer control of it to another person is also a "typical" kind of legal service in this context, but it can be and frequently is a more personal matter for the owners themselves.

At Stephenson Fournier in Houston, Texas, we respect the hard work and investments our clients have put in to building their companies, as well as their need for well-considered, high-quality legal services when it comes time to sell or take a step back. Whether you need assistance with selling your business or succession planning, our lawyers bring a keen sense for business honed through many years of practice, along with a common sense approach.
