Family Business

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.

Our family business team comprises lawyers from a wide range of disciplines, but all with a knowledge and understanding of the particular challenges facing this unique sector. We have strong relationships with other professional advisers and organisations working alongside family businesses, meaning we can provide quick and cost effective solutions.
