Exit & Liquidity Planning

Preparing to sell a significant asset like a business, a music catalogue, or a substantial piece of real estate presents numerous opportunities for planning to minimize taxes, shift ownership within the family, and benefit philanthropic interests. Exit planning is a process that often involves a team of experts across multiple disciplines working together for months or even years prior to a deal to properly structure and execute the transaction. Our exit and liquidity planning can help maximize the net proceeds of a deal done well:

  • Pre-Transaction planning
    • 1202 planning
    • Purchase price allocation and cost segregation
    • Equity rollover
    • Estate & legacy planning 
    • Tax optimization
    • Using private assets to accomplish charitable goals
  • Baird Business Owner Solutions
    • Business transitions
    • Value and marketability assessment
    • Mergers and acquisitions
  • 1031/721 (UPREIT) exchanges using Delaware Statutory Trusts (DSTs)
  • Exchange funds and completion portfolios
  • Qualified Opportunity Funds
