Get Help with Employee Buyouts

If you’re ready to retire and have an employee or group of employees who want to purchase the business from you, or you simply want to give loyal employees “first dibs” on owning the business that they helped you build, an employee buyout may be a business exit you wish to explore further.

Similar to passing along a business to family, in an employee buyout situation the ownership of the business is transferred from the business owner to the employee or employees. But to preserve your business legacy and reputation and maintain business continuity, it’s important that you work with an experienced partner to ensure that the transition goes smoothly.
