Succession Planning

Carrying on your business or transferring your business through estate planning or business planning is a big step that most people are intimidated by. For that reason, it is rarely done well.

We recommend that you consult with us during your estate planning process to discuss issues related to your business. Early discussion is critical and may bring to light issues that need to be negotiated – for example, the sale of assets, inventory, stock or real estate. In any event, discussion is usually a good way to get the issues outlined and plans for the future laid.

If your business is a significant asset, then consider…

Janson and Donahue PLLC has represented condominiums associations throughout the Upper Valley for many years. Many issues arise in condominium association governance and management, including by law review and updating, amending Declarations of Condominium, collection issues, priority liens, neighbor disputes, and third-party vendor contract review.

As a member of the Board of Directors, you want someone accessible to you who has experience in the many issues you will face when managing a condominium.
