Advising the Family Owned Business

By Nicholas Smith

Family businesses form the backbone of the UK economy. They also provide the bedrock of the business client base of most professional firms. This book examines the legal issues of particular relevance to family owned businesses. Often those issues stem from underlying family dynamics. Therefore advisors, be they legal financial or management need to be aware of the complexity created by these factors as well as the legal and commercial issues. The book contains an introduction to the key elements of family business thinking that have emerged over the last 30 years or so, to explain these dynamics and links these to relevant areas of professional practice. A key challenge is that professionals increasingly operate from ever narrower silos of specialisation, whereas the needs of their family business clients cross many practice areas. The book is intended to provide practitioners with an overview of family business issues from adjacent practice areas to their own, to help them offer rounded advice to family business clients. Accordingly the book will be relevant to other professionals and to those directly engaged in their own family businesses. [Subject: Trade Law, UK Law, Labor Law, Family Law]
