Law School Thesis - Transition plans Public vs. Private companies

Attached is my thesis paper from law school. It is long, though some might find it interesting. 

The concept started when I noticed my parent's generation starting to retire and, specifically, my dad. He was a solo-practice dentist and had never sold a business before. He had to become an expert at it for a single transaction.

That lead me down a rabbit hole of the differences between small companies and large when they transition ownership or leadership. This paper is about those differences. Someday I'll post and individual section or two.
