Justin Denton Discusses Succession Planning for Thought Leader Forum
Tonkon Torp attorney Justin Denton was featured in the latest “Thought Leader Forum” supplement published by the Portland Business Journal. The Thought Leader Forum covered the topic of succession planning and included a profile of Justin as well as an interview with him and other thought leaders.
When it comes to the future of a business, business owners should plan for the unexpected. Formulating a business succession plan is one of the most important things business owners can do and the risk of not creating one can be crippling. Yet experts in succession planning say too many companies fail to give it sufficient attention until it is far too late. To assist business owners and to better understand the challenges of succession planning, the Portland Business Journal brought together Justin and fellow thought leaders Pradeep Tempalli, CFO and Senior Wealth Advisor at Allium Financial Advisors, and Amy Apiado, a partner and CPA at Moss Adams. The group discusses what gets in the way of succession planning and lays out what steps business owners can take to make sure their succession plan actually works.
Justin Denton is a partner at Tonkon Torp, where he practices general business and corporate law. Much of his practice focuses on counseling family-owned and other closely held businesses. Justin has significant experience working with clients who are seeking to plan and implement business succession strategies, form or reorganize a business entity, create joint ventures with other businesses, arrange debt financing, resolve company ownership disputes, and buy or sell a business.
