Every business with multiple owners can benefit from an up-to-date agreement among the owners with terms to protect them from potential creditors and from each other. It is important to decide what happens if an owner dies, becomes disabled, or is affected by other significant events. Often, discussion of these issues leads to valuable planning opportunities. Andrew knows what issues to discuss, and is adept at guiding business owners through this process.
