Weiss Serota Helfman Cole & Bierman Partner Marc Solomon Presents at Inaugural Owners’ Roundtable Event

Chair of firm’s Corporate Practice co-founded new Fort Lauderdale-based group of business advisory specialists

Fort Lauderdale, FL ­­– Weiss Serota Helfman Cole & Bierman Partner Marc Solomon is a founding member of “The Transition Specialists,” a new group of business advisory specialists formed to help owners of South Florida companies maximize and protect the value of their businesses. Solomon is Chair of the law firm’s Corporate Practice.

The Transition Specialists organizes half-day seminars for business owners and senior managers. The group’s first Owners’ Roundtable seminar was held on Nov. 6 at Tower Club Fort Lauderdale. Solomon participated in panels on preserving a company’s value and exit/transition planning.

Other topics from the inaugural event included value creation, value drivers and triggering events. The group includes seasoned professionals from the accounting, legal, banking, insurance, real estate and wealth management sectors.

In lieu of a registration fee, all attendees were encouraged to make donations to support continued Hurricane Dorian relief efforts.

“Our first seminar was a tremendous success thanks to the hard work of everyone involved in the group,” Solomon said. “The attendees came away with a detailed understanding of how to improve the performance of their businesses in preparation for a transition or exit event. Whether the goal is a sale to a financial or strategic buyer or the transfer ownership to family members or key employees, long-term planning is critically important to achieving a successful outcome. We look forward to hosting more of these seminars in 2020 and beyond.”
