Your Family Business

A family business can bring with it a number of different questions, opportunities, problems and complexities. By getting to the heart of the business it can help family members to reach agreements, set long-term goals, establish a dynamic business strategy and futureproof their organisation.

Our expertise includes:

‘Ownership’ by in-laws

Corporate and family governance issues, including rules and procedures to resolve differences

Issues arising on exit

Professional management within the family business

Recommendations on how to resolve family disagreements and disputes

Solutions to avoid ‘exclusion’ amongst family members who are not directly engaged in the business
Structuring of Family Charters

            We believe that communication and inclusiveness is key when running a family business, but reaching an agreement on all business working practices, can sometimes be unrealistic. 

Our clients include families who are business owners, particularly those where over two or three generations, in a relatively short period there has been a substantial increase in the number of family members with a direct or indirect interest in the business.
