Attorneys Falk and Parry Attend Business Conference

On August 22, 2014, Kruse Landa Maycock & Ricks (KLMR) attorney Jennifer Falk was an invited speaker at a session titled “Business Exit Planning in the Context of Divorce” for the fifteenth annual Exit Planning Conference hosted by the Business Enterprise Institute (“BEI”) in Denver, Colorado. BEI is a national organization that equips attorneys, CPAs, and financial planners to help business owners increase business value and prepare for ownership transition. In her talk, Jennifer explained what typically happens to the business and the business owner when the owner goes through divorce. She also recommended several strategies that a business owner should consider to protect the business from the disruption and turmoil that a divorce can cause. The audience, which was clearly engaged, stayed around for a lively question-and-answer period following the presentation. KLMR’s Jon Parry, a long-time BEI member, also attended the conference. Jon is a business and estate planning attorney whose practice focuses on providing business owners with well thought-out and comprehensive business exit strategies, including sales to third parties and “insider” transitions to employees or family members.
