Our conversations will focus on:

  • Inheritance planning
  • Family meeting facilitation
  • Asset titling and ownership
  • Estate tax minimization strategies
  • Lifetime gifting strategies
  • Asset replacement solutions
  • Trust management

Business sale, succession and liquidity solutions

Are you optimizing the value of your company—and legacy?

So many factors—with both short- and long-term consequences—come into play when you’re considering selling your company. It’s never an easy decision. Our involvement in the very early stages of your thinking can add important insight and possibly enhance the outcome of your business transition strategy.

We engage all of the resources needed to help maximize the value of the event—whether through sale, succession or IPO—so you can confidently pursue your life’s goals. Our recommendations address:

  • Structure and timing
  • Valuation opportunities
  • Risk management
  • Estate planning strategies
  • Collaboration with UBS private equity and investment banking teams
