"It's important to work with an attorney who is deeply familiar with the relevant area of law, said Amanda Heyman, an attorney with the firm, Jambor Heyman. The firm works primarily in the food, farm and beverage sector. They are business attorneys, but succession comes up when they are forming business entities.
In addition to finding an attorney familiar with succession, transition and estate planning, make sure the attorney understands agriculture as there are various special provisions in law regarding agricultural transitions, Heyman said.Spend time interviewing different attorneys to make sure you are comfortable with the attorney and trust the attorney to work on this matter for you, she said."
