Practice ExampleProtect your high value clients

Allen is an accountant with annual practice fees of $600K. He has commenced his firm’s succession planning process by segmenting his client base. Allen’s largest business client represents 10% of his annual fee income. The client is a family business with the son likely to take control of the business when his parents retire. This is expected to happen within the next 2 years.

The concern for Allen is his lack of control over his client’s generational succession.

In particular, Allen does not have a strong advisory relationship with his client’s son. In fact the son goes to a competitor for professional advice. Allen faces a potential loss in business value if the client changes business advisers.
