Whether managing an existing ESOP company, or considering selling to a newly formed ESOP, the unique opportunities and challenges presented oftentimes are not encountered under other ownership structures or sales to third parties. Your business advisors should have the in-depth knowledge, experience and resources to help manage these opportunities and challenges, protect assets, and provide innovative ideas.
