Estate planning is a complicated decision-making process, and adding in a family business only makes it more so. Interests frequently diverge when some family members are involved in the business and others are not. Hiring outside management does not necessarily resolve matters. Structures and practices must be put in place to minimize conflict between successive generations and family branches. Governance and procedures can potentially reduce tensions, as can a clear mission statement. Deciding if and when to sell the business, and to how best accomplish such a sale, can ultimately be the most important business decision made.
