EDWARDSVILLE – The Exit Planning Institute says attorney Todd Sivia, of Sivia Law Firm, has earned the Certified Exit Planning Advisor designation after completing the institute’s five-day executive MBA-style program in Chicago.
Completion allows Sivia to better advise business owners on their business goals, company value, planning and strategies. Sivia also obtained the Certified Exit Planner designation in 2016.
“Every company owner should be thinking about how they’re going to exit their business,” he said. “It will inevitably happen, whether by choice or accident. Typically, business owners find they exit through the 5 Ds (death, disability, distress within the business, divorce or disagreement between partners).”
To receive the CEPA designation, Sivia completed a program that involved approximately 100 hours of pre-course study, 30 hours of classroom instruction and successful completion of a 3 hour proctored examination.
Sivia Business & Legal Services, P.C. is an asset protection law firm focusing on general business law, personal injury, real estate, estate planning, litigation, and elder law. The firm is located at 217 South Main St., Edwardsville.
