Smart individuals recognize the need for considerate and experienced guidance in matters such as succession, estate and retirement planning, and MWE has been providing help to such individuals and businesses for more than 60 years.
Family dynamics can be challenging during the drafting of your plan. MWE's partners are fully experienced in engaging with principals, as well as other interested individuals, with understanding and discretion. As your MWE partner navigates you through this process, you will be guided to consider important and necessary factors that will constitute your plan, such as:

- How will controlling interests in business & investment companies be held?

- How should you provide incentive performance compensation plans to key non-family employees?
