The Business Transition Process: Peeling Back the Onion. 

David H. Shlagbaum, LL.B.  Senior Counsel/Facilitator, Pallett Valo LLP. 

David is a member of the firm's Business Law Practice, and is a member of the Family Business Law Group and Wills, Estates & Trusts Practice. 

The presentation will take a look at the people aspect and the not so obvious opportunities that arise in a comprehensive approach to transition planning.  It will look at Shareholders Agreements as an opportunity to professionalize the business and to educate. It will talk about getting business owners to run their business as if it’s for sale, about starting to look at their business as if they were a buyer, about how to protect goodwill and about embracing change. 

David has been working with business owners and their families for more than 30 years, guiding them through the transition and succession planning process, advising on governance models and shareholder arrangements, business acquisitions and sales, and resolving shareholder and partner disputes. David regards each family enterprise as unique, requiring a personalized approach and one that respects individual as well as collective goals. Through an engaged facilitative process, David works with his clients to develop transparency and trust and lay the groundwork for policies, governance structures and agreements designed to allow business owners and their families to live their vision and achieve their goals..


Important event: Wade Baldwin speaks on “Financial Advice for All”

As many of you know, the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) is proposing a ban on embedded commissions. This could have the power to change the structure of our entire industry, and could have a severe impact on the number of Canadians who are able to afford high-quality financial advice.

To address this issue head on, Advocis has started an aggressive campaign called Financial Advice For All. The association is actively encouraging Canadians from coast to coast to visit the website www.financialadviceforall.com, where they can register their name and then click on the “Take Action” tab to send a letter to their provincial politician. This letter will let the government know that they oppose the ban on embedded commissions, and that quality financial advice should be accessible for ALL Canadians.

To get advisors across the country fired up and on board with this campaign, Advocis is embarking on a cross-country speaking tour. TFAAC Chair Wade Baldwin will be visiting Peel Region to speak about the campaign at our local Advocis chapter’s Breakfast Meeting on April 26, 2017 at the Credit Valley Golf Club

This is a talk you won’t want to miss. Open to Advocis members and non-members alike, all are invited to come hear Wade Baldwin address an issue that’s of utmost importance to financial advisors across the nation.
