Family-Owned and Other Closely Held Businesses

We have substantial experience solving the unique and sometimes highly charged problems that confront family-owned and small businesses.  These businesses are often confronted with inter-personal and inter-generational issues that must be addressed with professionalism and objectivity coupled with sensitivity to the relationships involved.

We address each stage of family and closely held business development, including initial selection of the appropriate business form, financial structure, access to capital, corporate and family tax planning, corporate governance, generational succession, and estate planning designed to protect the integrity and value of the business. In addition, our attorneys have assisted small businesses in mergers and acquisitions, joint venture agreements, split-offs and spin-offs, and repurchases or redemptions of founders' shares.
