Attorneys For Family-Run Businesses

Entrepreneurialism is deeply rooted in the American spirit; our country was founded by risk-takers and innovators who dared to put their livelihoods on the line for the prospect of new opportunities.
Many entrepreneurs start as small, family-run businesses. These businesses are establishments and partnerships with unique needs, often requiring people-centered solutions to set them up for long-term success. Our experienced business law attorneys are well-versed in navigating complex and sensitive issues such as succession, non-family employees, disability and retirement planning, dispute resolution, and more.
