Attorney Susan Faunce Moderates Panel on Succession Planning at MSBA “Maine Law, Business & Society Summit”

Berman & Simmons Attorney is moderating the panel, “Succession: Business.”

Berman & Simmons Attorney Susan Faunce was tapped for her legal expertise to serve among the faculty for the Maine State Bar Association’s Maine Law, Business & Society Summit, an educational event convening for the legal community. The event is being held Jan. 24 – 26 at the Westin Harborview Hotel in Portland.

With a theme addressing the issues that keep business leaders up at night, Susan is moderating the panel, “Succession: Business.” Attendees will address the importance of planning ahead for business owners, exit strategies such as intergenerational family business plans, employee stock options pools (ESOPS), and selling the business.

Working in partnership with the Portland Regional Chamber of Commerce for the first time, the three-day learning conference is designed for Maine’s lawyers and business leaders to come together to discuss a wide array of issues, identify ways to collaborate for Maine’s future, and network.
