When closing your business is the only option

You've dedicated several years to your small business, but now it's time to say "goodbye." Upon reflection, you recall the early months of creating a business plan, securing investors, hiring and training employees and building the business.

Tax reform does not mean less need for estate planning

There was a time when so-called "death taxes" were a major concern for individuals in Kentucky and in other states. These are the estate taxes, charged to a person's estate after death to allow transfer of property to beneficiaries; and inheritance taxes, those paid by heirs on the value of the property they receive.

Estate planning for new parents

Estate planning is often not on the mind of young individuals. However, if you are a new parent, estate planning is an important part of making sure your child’s future is secure. When you have a new baby, estate planning can help protect your child in case you get into an accident resulting in your death.

The business value of conflict management over avoidance

There are those who argue that relationships between employers and employees today are more like marriages than the cash-for-labor construct that has dominated the labor market since the start of the industrial age. Indeed, some economists suggest that in the past 20 years, employer benefits have emphasized supporting employee emotional needs over wages.

Are you meeting challenges of corporate governance?

Perhaps one of the greatest difficulties any public U.S. or multi-national corporation faces is walking the fine line between protecting business efforts for growth and fulfilling regulatory requirements on transparency. The fact that standards vary greatly from one government to the next only makes things more challenging.

Family conflict is the chief threat to successful estate planning

A successful estate plan is one that passes your assets to the next generation while minimizing unnecessary taxation and limiting other expenses. This may include, for example, reducing the need for probate by placing the assets in an appropriate trust. It may also include taking steps to minimize intra-family disputes that could result in a challenge to the estate distribution.
