Who We Are: Experts at Exit Planning

Legacy Advisors Network (LAN) is the premier professional community of advisors dedicated to guiding owners of private and family businesses through the most important financial transaction of their lives—the continuity, succession and transition of their business.

While our members bring a wealth of knowledge and skills across all areas of the financial planning industry, we are especially passionate about serving business owners in the small to medium-size business market across a variety of industries. We work directly with the owners, leadership teams and their professional partners (CPAs, attorneys, etc.) to develop customized solutions that meet the owner's needs and desires—from valuing the business and market insights to evaluating the best succession options, and creating step-by-step implementation plans to quarterbacking the process through the business transition. Along the way, we also often identify personal financial planning needs, as well.

What's Unique about LAN

Our members support each other's work through collaborative client opportunities, leveraging the deep bench strength we offer. Working together generates growth among our member firms and opens up significant client engagements not available to a sole advisor.

Also, through LAN, members have access to a fully integrated system of people, tools and processes to deliver best-in-class* solutions to clients, grow their businesses, continually learn and hone their capabilities, and partner with smart, highly engaged peers and industry experts.

*Our planning process and approach have been recognized as being "best in class" by noted business author Bo Burlingham, who wrote Small Giants and Finish Big.
