Duff & Phelps guides clients through successful family business transition processes.
When it comes to running a business, the toughest question you may face is who will own your business after you move on.

Duff & Phelps’ team of professionals bring the perfect balance between sharp analytical skills and independence to provide invaluable market expertise. We have helped our clients navigate complex issues, providing credible analysis and the practical advice needed to make sound business decisions.
Duff & Phelps stresses the importance of developing a formal exit strategy before your business requires one. There are a variety of risks associated with a lack of succession planning.
