You will gain the tools to identify future partnership characteristics, assess high-potential talent, develop people with the business acumen to build, manage, and lead successful firms, and invest in the right people the right way to fit the firm's strategy. Ensure you have the right people at the right time for successful succession.

Beyond the Tax: Supporting Your Client Through a Business Succession
Beyond the Tax: Supporting Your Client Through a Business Succession

A complete succession assignment could have as many as 30 aspects. During our time together we will cover some of these aspects, such as: managing family issues, strategy, shareholder agreements, asset protection, leadership development, advisory boards, conflict management, and family councils, which are all areas an SME practitioner can contribute.

The session will outline how to change a low trust culture into a high trust culture by identifying critical behaviors and how leaders need to develop personal credibility before they can build a trusting organization.

Not only will we look at key drivers such as: net income per partner, billing rates, leverage, and so on, but we will also explore how to get better results. This session builds on the earlier session: Practice Performance Matters – How Does Your Firm Compare?
