Everett Peaden SHAREHOLDER Mergers & Acquisitions; Business Law; Taxation; Estate Planning & Wealth Management

"I want to help my clients achieve their goals and attain the best possible results given their unique circumstances."

Business and Tax. Rett’s practice focuses on helping the owners of closely-held businesses and professional services firms exit their businesses, whether that involves selling the business or transferring it to the next generation. Getting a business onto a solid footing with regard to succession planning is essential, and Rett is well-versed in sophisticated tax strategies and entity structuring techniques that may be needed. He will also advise on and guide clients through strategic acquisitions to grow their own businesses. Rett regularly counsels clients on corporate, partnership, and related tax-planning matters, including the negotiation and preparation of mergers and acquisitions agreements, the drafting of shareholders agreements, the formation of limited partnerships and limited liability companies, the structuring of inbound investment opportunities for foreign nationals, the creation and operation of private foundations and public charities, and the review and drafting of executive compensation agreements. In connection with advising the owners of closely-held businesses, Rett has developed a particular interest in the taxation of pass-through entities such as S-Corporations, partnerships, and trusts.

Preserving legacy. The estate planning side of the practice, often done for the owners of closely held businesses, is highly personal, involving an individual’s legacy and the achievements of a lifetime. Rett’s purpose is to help his clients prepare for the future, provide for their families, and accomplish their long-term personal and charitable goals. In doing so, he works to develop plans that are well thought out and emphasize preserving wealth from unnecessary taxes and unanticipated risks. He knows how to take family dynamics into account, and draws insights from his work in business exit-planning and trust and estate administration to help families plan with foresight to avoid problems that could happen later on. Rett is often called upon by other professionals to advise them on the complicated income and transfer tax issues that can arise in the context of trusts and estates. On the trust and estate administration side of the practice, Rett works in both contested and uncontested matters. He assists survivors in managing their inherited wealth, and often continues to serve their families and family businesses as a trusted advisor on the basis of the confidence he inspires in them.

Segun J. Adesanya, Chief Operating Officer Sanya Air Cargo

Welcome to the fourth episode of International Business Radio! Our guest this week is Segun J. Adesanya part of Sanya Airways based in Atlanta’s own Hartsfield-Jackson Airport. With a focus on increasing trade between America and Africa, Sanya Airways imports and exports cargo from Atlanta, Nigeria, Ghana, and even Germany. The company started only two years ago, but Segun himself has spent most of his career in the aviation business and has his own pilot’s license. The company normally operates with ‘normal’ consumer products, but be on the lookout downtown for a giraffe! As Segun recounts having once transported one to Atlanta.

The mission for him is to increase awareness of the viability of the African market. He wants to increase the community feel between American and Africa, so it no longer feels like a far off world. As he tells it, Sanya Airways has a number of regular clients and can transport up to 45 tons per trip! If you’re a manufacturer thinking about expanding into the African market look to Sanya Airways to transport your products. They can offer competitive rates and they have many services to offer their clients. Segun is looking to expand the number of countries, and cities in Africa he transports cargo to and along the way acquire more planes. A Sanya Airways fleet may be on the horizon because Segun is looking to put Sanya on the map as the number one international air freight company in Atlanta.
