Family businesses are the cornerstone of the British economy and each one is different. We have over 150 years experience of dealing with
family businesses and understand the dynamics that can impact both the family and the business. In recent years we have worked closely with
the International Centre for Families in Business, and together with the Centre have developed a unique
programme of training in family business dynamics for our partners.
In addition to our more traditional services to business we have developed services specific to family and owner managed businesses that focus on:
Personal financial planning
achieving your desired lifestyle for your future and long-term financial independence.
Estate and wealth management
strategies to ensure your estate is transferred efficiently and wealth is maximised.
Business financial planning
processes to improve your business to achieve an optimal sale price or prepare the business to be passed on within the family.
developing a succession strategy for a new management team while maintaining business profitability.
Owner and exit transition strategies
