Our team of ESOP, tax, benefits and succession planning attorneys negotiates on behalf of owners, trustees, lenders and shareholders, and can quarterback transactions from conception to implementation.

We advise business owners, ESOP trustees, financial advisers, minority shareholders and investors in:

  • ESOP conversions
  • ESOPs in ownership succession transactions
  • Sale of ESOP companies
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Fairness opinions
  • Due diligence
  • Closing documentation

This comprehensive advice enables business owners to evaluate and compare the tax and other benefits of an ESOP sale to a traditional sale to a strategic buyer or a private equity fund.
