Overview

Structuring

Business structuring involves assisting our clients with whatever form of a business works best for them. We work with and assist business advisors at all stages of growth: From the initial set up, to restructuring a business along the way, whether it be for tax planning reasons, to accommodate and implement a business succession plan, or advise on growth strategies for the business.
