Merging and Acquiring Professional Practices
By John Colucci, Esq., CPA, McLane Law Firm and Stephen Feron, CPA, Johnson O'Connor Feron & Carucci, LLP
The purchase or merger of a professional practice can either be a golden opportunity or an existence threatening disaster. The demographics of nearly all professional service industries show a large population nearing retirement and the coming transfer of thousands of attorney, certified public accountant, physician and other professional practices within the next 10 years. Those transfers are happening now, and represent a good opportunity for professional service companies to grow and professionals to retire. The webinar explores both the pitfalls and the opportunities in transferring the professional practice. Whether it be the acquisition of a small practice by a larger one, a merger of equals or an employed professional buying into an existing practice, the webinar will help you think about ways to make the process successful.
