Business owners often come to us with little knowledge of ESOPs. We get it. Time is tight. But ultimately, if you were considering a liquidity event, wouldn't you want to know all your options?

ESOPs enable privately-held companies to sell shares, at a fair market value, to an employee trust. This creates tax-advantaged liquidity for the selling shareholders and valuable benefits for companies and their employees.
