Houston Business Succession Lawyer — Intestate Succession Planning


Succession of a business must be tailored to its specific type of formation or entity. For a sole proprietorship, the company may successfully be passed to another owner through a simple succession plan, with proper documentation and transfer of required titles. Partnerships require a buy-sell agreement between the partners, either selling the remainder of the business to the surviving partner or providing a sale agreement between the surviving partner and the deceased partner's heirs. This can also provide clear direction as to the role the heir will play in the business going forward. Corporations require additional agreements and transfers of shares and stock, but these requirements are generally already outlined as existing contingency plans for the death or divorce of controlling interests.


Our attorneys possess a deep understanding and breadth of knowledge in succession planning and will tailor our solutions to protect your interests and the investment you have made into your business.
