Turnkey Solutions for Every Situation

One of the biggest hurdles for some advisors is finding a buyer to purchase their practice in the event of an unplanned death or disability. For this reason, we offer two flexible solutions based upon each advisor's unique circumstances.

Specific Buyer Identified

If you have already identified the party who will buy your practice upon your death or disability, then we can help you formalize the process with our Turnkey Continuity Plan. We conduct a valuation and establish the terms between yourself and the buyer.

No Buyer Identified

If you know that you need a plan, but you do not know a specific buyer, we can still help protect your practice. Our Turnkey Guardian Plan makes arrangements for the handling, sale, and transition of your practice in the event of an unplanned exit.

Legal Agreements

Handshake deals are too risky for your practice. Our continuity plans are written by attorneys who understand the nuances of our business. We ensure that you have a rock-solid plan to protect your clients and your heirs when the unexpected happens.
