Family businesses are at the core of the UK economy but they have their own unique difficulties to negotiate which are often overlooked. At BLB, we have a specialist Family Business Team which draws lawyers from various departments of the firm including commercial, private client, dispute resolution and, of course, family.
We have a long history of acting for family owned businesses and we recognise the importance of understanding the issues that are important to both the business and the family. We also understand that support from non-family employees and family members not actively involved in the business can be crucial.
We can help with:
- Commercial and family strategy
- Shareholder agreements
- Business sales and purchases
- Business expansion
- Succession planning
- Dispute resolution
