Are you actively maximizing the market value of your business?
Knowing who to work with can make all the difference. The LeDoyen Price Group has two Certified Exit Planning Advisors (CEPA) on our team who can help mitigate the risks that come with selling a business. Our process focuses on value acceleration. We help business owners take the guesswork out of selling their business, empowering control over how and when they exit.
How do you prepare personally and financially for a successful business exit?
Not only do we focus on the readiness of the business, but we emphasize personal readiness when going through a business transition. What net proceeds figure do you need to sustain the rest of your life? Working together, as you transition in life or seek out new opportunities, we will help make key financial decisions much simpler.
Beginning as early as possible, our process starts with critical pre-liquidity planning all the way through execution and closing. Prior to the transaction, we help you develop a personalized strategy to maximize the value of this event so you can confidently pursue your life goals post-sale.
Estate planning strategies
We will look at how the sale aligns with your personal estate planning goals and help to find opportunities to lower future estate tax burdens.
Tax planning strategies
Working with your CPA or tax professional to identify the right strategy can make a significant difference in the proceeds you take home from the sale.
We‘ll help you see how the sale might enable you to have a greater impact on the philanthropic causes that are meaningful to you and your family. Considering the right charitable vehicle, we will help you assess if a donor-advised fund or charitable remainder trust to generate an income tax deduction is right for you and your goals.
Post-liquidity wealth management
The right post-sale wealth management strategy can help you make a successful transition to the next phase of your wealth management journey. To help inform our recommendations about deal structure, valuation opportunities and tax considerations, we’ll coordinate with our network of both third-party and UBS experts in:
- Trusts and estate planning strategies
- Cash flow modeling
- Private equity and debt financing
- Family governance and education
- Multigenerational planning
Liquidity. Longevity. Legacy.
Our approach can help you organize your financial life into three key dimensions: Liquidity—to help provide cash flow for short-term expenses, Longevity—for longer-term needs and Legacy—for needs that go beyond your own. Through the plan we create together, we can help you pursue what matters most today, tomorrow and for generations to come.

Are you eager for a new challenge beyond your business? The right post-sale wealth management strategy will help you make a successful transition to the next phase in your life journey.
Understanding your priorities
We offer solutions that extend beyond your portfolio, including advice on family decision-making, business and generational transitions, wealth transfer and family governance.
Family office services
We provide a dedicated organization to help bridge the generational gaps across a family. In addition, we can work with the UBS Global Family Office group to seamlessly integrate comprehensive wealth management with institutional-level business solutions for family offices.
Through the UBS Family Advisory group, we offer extensive services on family decision-making, business and generational transitions, wealth transfer and family office governance.
Helping to preserve multigenerational wealth
When planning your estate or building your legacy, our team will work with you and family members to provide education on philanthropy and participation strategies for the next generation. In that way, you care for future generations and charitable organizations with the least possible tax impact and expense.

You will have direct access to an experienced team that aligns its experience and the strength of the firm with your organization's goals. Through a close working relationship, we take a hands-on approach and provide product-agnostic advice without any conflict of interest.
As an experienced team, we work with a sophisticated range of organizations to design, implement and monitor their investment programs. By accessing the intellectual capital of UBS, as well as its in-depth manager research capabilities, we combine global insights and analyses with an open architecture mix of managers and funds.
We work with:
Foundations and endowments
We are keenly aware of the different needs of nonprofit entities. In many cases, they have personal connections to philanthropic causes.
We offer a structured approach designed to help them better manage their pension funds and 401(k) plans, as well as their balance sheet assets and nonqualified plans.
Fiduciary liability is a primary concern for many institutional clients. We acknowledge our responsibility in writing as defined in Section 3(21) of ERISA and will help you develop an investment process to address fiduciary obligations.
