  • Equity between family members
  • Avoiding disputes
  • Containing the impact where a dispute is inevitable

Business Succession

Many business owners hold a good deal of their wealth in their business. Ensuring that value is transferred to the right hands should the business principal die or lose competency is essential.

Without a strong business succession plan, the value can be lost. Diamond Conway have considerable experience in;

  • understanding business dynamics,
  • understanding the succession issues relevant to particular business entity arrangements, and
  • developing strategies (and the required implementation documents) that would deliver the right outcome should the need arise.

Estate Disputes

The best estate disputes between family members are the ones that don’t happen.

When we are preparing estate plans for our clients, we look for potential problems and put forward strategies aimed at either:

  • avoiding the dispute completely, or
  • mitigating its impact on both the people you care for and the end value of the estate.
