Puzzle Pieces

ESOP Solutions

Our team is dedicated to results for your business.

How much of your net worth is tied to your business? If your answer is a substantial percentage, you probably are inquiring about how to transfer this wealth to the next generation of entrepreneurs; while attracting, rewarding, and retaining valuable employees. ESOPs are the hottest new trend in American business and can be accomplished in a variety of ways. Let our experienced ESOP professionals effectively guide you through the process.

Solutions by Role

The unique opportunities and challenges presented in an ESOP structure oftentimes are not encountered under other ownership arrangements or third-party sales. It is critical to partner with business advisors who possess the extensive knowledge, experience, and resources to help manage an ESOP’s many moving parts, safeguard assets, and contribute innovative ideas and advice to navigate this complex plan.

 

Our close and long-term relationships with trustees, attorneys, third-party administrators, and financial institutions allow us to build a top-notch team to provide you with the best knowledge, experience, and resources available.
