Minter Ellison Education Session - Incapacity and Death – the Role of Estate Planning in Business Succession

Wednesday 12th February
7.00am arrival for 7.15am start and 8.15am finish

Presenter: Tim Baumann, Senior Associate

The focus of both emerging and established businesses is often on ensuring the continued success of the business. But what happens if a key person is injured or passes away? Will the business continue to operate? Is there going to be a dispute if a hostile party is introduced to the management of the business through inheritance? In this session, we will discuss the impact of death and incapacity on the operation of a business as well as practical estate planning steps that can and should be taken to ensure disharmony or dispute do not materialise following an unexpected event, that then threatens the continued operation of a business.

Member Cost: $10

(Education sessions are only available to members of the Gold Coast Central Chamber of Commerce)
