Luce Forward Hamilton & Scripps has established a new business succession planning team to help family-owned and closely held business owners transfer their businesses to the next generation or profitably dispose of them.
The new team features combined legal experience in business, corporate, family wealth and exempt organization, fiduciary litigation, international estate planning, taxation, and securities.
"Luce Forward is a forward-thinking firm, dedicated to proactively providing solutions which address emerging client needs," said Louis A. Mezzullo, a partner at the firm who will lead the new team. "By forming the firm's new business succession planning team, we are able to better provide answers for business owners who are faced with many complex issues that impede them from transferring their businesses to the next generation."
In addition to Mezzullo, the newly formed business succession planning team consists of seasoned Luce Forward attorneys in partners Jason A. Femrite, Michelle B. Graham and Phil L. Jelsma, and special counsel, Karl A. Rand.
