Too many professional practitioners equate estate planning for family agribusiness owners with succession planning. Although there is a degree of overlap between the two practice areas, their goals are wholly and completely different.

Succession planning is designed to provide a plan for the orderly transition of ownership from one generation to the next at the owner’s retirement, disability or premature death.


  • Succession planning focuses on transferring ownership to family members, co-owners, key employees and/or third parties as a going concern under specified conditions.
  • Estate planning addresses transferring wealth to heirs, providing for survivors and minimizing the estate tax after death.
