Family Business Strategy

When family businesses develop their business strategy and governance, they must simultaneously balance business, family and social issues. We understand the inherent tensions arising from the interplay between personal and corporate wealth. We act as advisor and sounding board for our clients in working through these strategic issues. Our clients are family businesses and founder led businesses. They typically ask for advice across a range of issues including: growth capital, scaling existing or starting new businesses, divestiture of non-core assets, liquidity creation and how to buy out minority or majority shareholders. At a time of unprecedented technological change, many of our clients are seeking our advice on adapting their business models. Working alongside a client’s financial advisors, we draw upon our deeply experienced resources to address implications of these and other issues relevant to family businesses.
