Company Succession

For the best Future for your Company!


For every entrepreneur, the right company succession is a matter of heart because the own company should remain only in the best hands.

In Germany alone, succession is an urgent question for approx. 22,000 companies(1) every year. Additionally, more than 100,000 further succession cases are actually unsolved. In all Europe this means that we have currently estimated 540,000 unclear company successions.


The figures illustrate that the number of unsolved company successions will also rise in future.



We are specialists in company succession


Some reasons for a failed company succession:

  • The successor has not the right personality
  • The successor model is not built in an economically realistic way
  • The company appraisal was not made in a merchantable way
  • The successor or predecessor is not satisfied
  • The employees were not in mind in the succession deal
  • The transfer is not realized in a positive way
  • The collaboration with customers and suppliers was not incorporated


It is rightly spoken a so called “succession problem”. However, all entrepreneurs who start their succession activities timely have good chances to find the best solution for their companies, for the employees and, of course, also for themselves. Furthermore, all those who are ready to consult with experienced experts have very good to excellent chances to achieve a satisfying succession result.
