Growing and nurturing a family or other closely-held business is not for the fainthearted. I counsel business owners as they navigate the key decisions, transitions, transactions, and challenges, opportunities that mark their business and personal lifestyles, often working collaboratively with advisors from other professional disciplines.

Looking Out of a Skyscaper


It's inevitable that -- at some point -- you'll leave the firm you built, and it's likely to be the largest transaction of your life. That departure will impact every aspect of your life, as well as your family and employees.

While family businesses face the same hurdles as others, they're also confronted by the minefields of shared histories, interdependent relationships, and long-standing and complex conflicts.

I offer business owners monthly retainer agreements when such an arrangement makes mutual sense. I work closely with the owner to define the scope of services and agree upon a fixed monthly retainer. The scope of services and retainer are periodically reviewed and adjusted, as necessary, to ensure fairness to all parties.

Business owners face a staggering number of complex and diverse issues. Legal, business, and personal considerations often intersect.  That's why I begin by understanding my client's business and short-, medium-, and long-term goals, opportunities, challenges, and risks. This enables me to knowledgeably advise on key decisions and focus my representation on what is most important to the client.
