The Most Important Document You May Ever Sign

The unsung hero of many a successful generational transition is the buy-sell agreement. It is one of the most important documents in the succession planning arsenal. It protects the operation from the whims of inactive owners and off-farm interests. A well-written and properly executed agreement can ensure the operation remains in the family and is protected from death, disability, divorce and dissolution.

A formal agreement is based on multiple triggering events, and provisions of a buy/sell agreement may include: valuation, applicable discounts, terms, conditions and restrictions.

Take a few moments and use our Buy/Sell Agreement Review
to make sure you’ve got your bases covered.

Please don’t hesitate to ask Kevin if you have any questions.
