We assist you with your company’s succession planning

Taking good, forward-looking steps to plan their company’s succession is one of the most important tasks in the life of an entrepreneur – second only to starting up their business in the first place. About half of all company transfers are made to persons outside the family, owing to a lack of successors in the family. Timely planning is therefore crucial to ensure a smooth company handover.

Our experts at LeitnerLeitner support you and your family business in all aspects of corporate succession, regardless of whether you are planning to pass it on to a family member or to an external successor.
