Our expert team can advise you on the full spectrum of business matters.
As a law firm for life, we work with many small and family businesses. We know how important it is to our clients to make sure that their businesses are protected if anything happens to them. It is essential that small businesses carefully consider how they would protect their business if anything were to happen to the key people involved.
One of the key ways you can protect your business if anything happens to you is by having a Power of Attorney in place.
A Power of Attorney is a legal document which gives another person the authority to act on your behalf. You may have heard of this type of legal document in relation to elderly parents, where children are often appointed as Attorneys to allow them to look after their parents and make personal and financial decisions on their behalf.
The same type of document can be used in a more commercial way – specifically in relation to your business – granting someone else the authority to make business decisions, sign documents and deal with financial matters if you are not able to do so. A Power of Attorney in this context can offer a very practical solution, allowing the business to continue operating normally in what may be a difficult situation.
At The McKinstry Company, we can assist you in preparing the relevant documentation, giving you peace of mind. It can be difficult to pause and plan for the future but our team is familiar with the relevant processes and can help you in a practical, commercial manner.
Our business law team can help you plan for the future – from succession planning to selling your business. There are many possible ways to future-proof your business. If this is something you are interested in, contact our team today. Our dedicated, diligent team are always happy to help.
