Family Owned Businesses
Families are special and a well run family business can be both a hugely successful enterprise and a rewarding experience. We know that when it comes to a business that is owned or managed by a family, the business and family roles can sometimes overlap and emotions can interfere with sound decision-making. This is when professional advisers who understand the particular characteristics of the family business can make all the difference. We have a proven track record and long-standing reputation for advising family owned businesses, whether on key strategic decisions relating to growth, sale, non-family recruitment, or on the day to day operations.
The Birketts team continues to advise existing and new clients, including a significant number of companies from the SME sector and family-owned companies.
