Business Succession and Exit Management

Most business owners have questions about what will happen to their business upon retirement, unexpected illness or death. Harris law can advise on Agreements specifically designed to make sure you and your family are covered while allowing the remaining business owners to get on with running the business. Effectively “business prenups” these agreements are always better entered into during the ‘courting’ phase of a business relationship to help to avoid a nasty business “divorce”.

If you do find yourself in the midst of a messy business exit we can work with you to resolve your dispute with your business partner/s.

If you are in business but not with others you should still plan for the contingencies of what would happen on death or incapacity. At Harris Law we can help you draft your Company Power of Attorney documents, review your Company Constitution or Trust Deed terms and prepare a Succession Plan to ensure that control of your business passes in accordance with your wishes.

We can assist you with:

  • Shareholders, Unitholders or Partnership Agreements;
  • Company Power of Attorney Documents;
  • Buy-Sell Option Agreements;
  • Exit Management advice;
  • Exit dispute resolution.
