Family Business Lawyers

Specialist Legal Advice and Support for Family Businesses

Family businesses have the benefit of a long term view because they understand that the family's future is affected by the success of the business. However, family-owned businesses face unique challenges such as how to successfully manage the transition of ownership and management from generation to generation.

The success of a family business depends upon its ability to manage these challenges and make the most of the opportunities presented by its unique characteristics. We help family businesses facing issues like these to deal with what can, at times, seem to the family to be insurmountable challenges.

How can our family business lawyers help you?

We work with family-owned businesses and individuals to find a path through the emotional and family bonds to find the right legal, commercial and family solution to the issue. We recognise that the emotional aspects of the relationship need to be acknowledged and addressed as part of any legal or commercial solution.

We have a unique Family Business team which draws specialist lawyers from across a variety of legal disciplines into one team, and is dedicated to providing family business centred advice. The challenges are clearly complex. We work very closely with other specialist advisers such as family business consultants and accountants to make sure the solution works from every perspective.
