Why Piedmont Business?

While they are experts at developing and growing their businesses, many business owners struggle with planning for succession in ownership as they approach retirement or desire to pursue other interests. Piedmont Business, LLC was founded on the experience of Steve Minnich, a North Carolina attorney who has assisted clients for almost twenty years in making that transition.

Whether you are ready to sell now, or simply contemplating the future, Piedmont Business can help you assess your options and prepare for the future. In addition, we bring experience with resolving legal and business issues that threaten successful ownership transitions.

Piedmont Business is a member of the International Business Brokers Association, the largest association of business brokers and merger and acquisition professionals, and the regional Carolinas-Virginia Business Brokers Association. Its founder, Steve Minnich, is a North Carolina licensed attorney, certified as a Certified Business Intermediary through the International Business Brokers Association, and past President (2015) and Board Member (2013-2015) of the Carolinas-Virginia Business Brokers Association. Piedmont Business does not provide legal services.

You will find that Piedmont Business is not a one-size-fits-all business-for-sale listing shop. We approach each consulting opportunity as a unique engagement, tailored to meet our clients’ best interests. We do not list businesses that we do not believe will sell, or businesses that we would not be willing to recommend to a good friend. Each engagement is viewed as a partnership between Piedmont Business and our client, and our objectives are to educate prospective business sellers and buyers about the process and to help them achieve their goals.
