The Purpose Of This Site

Estate Planning is the art and science of arranging for the orderly, efficient and economical transfer of material wealth from one individual or group of individuals to another, usually younger, individual or group.

Business Planning, sometimes more accurately called Business Succession Planning, consists of arranging for the orderly, efficient and economical transfer of ownership of a closely held business entity from one owner or group of owners to another.

Like most all of life's work, these tasks can be done well or done ill, and to a significant extent the outcome depends on the attitudes, as well as the aptitudes, of the people involved. The purpose of this Site is to try to improve those peoples' odds of success.
