FCAI Succession Planning Webinar from FCAI on Vimeo.

Presenters: Natalie Perry, Partner, Ice Miller Legal Counsel
Mike Grady, American Trust Investment Services

Without a succession plan, business owners create unnecessary risk. Most people tend to put off dealing with succession issues until it’s too late or until they are “well established” in their businesses. This contributes to businesses being unable to sustain themselves over the course of time. The bottom line is you need to have a plan - both a succession and estate plan.
