Family & Closely Held Businesses

The attorneys in Brenner, Saltzman & Wallman’s Family & Closely Held Businesses practice group understand that family-held companies often have goals and face issues distinct from those typical of more widely-held businesses. Of particular concern may be matters such as management and business governance, ownership succession, compensation of non‑participating owners, and the insulation of the business from changes affecting individual owners.

Our long history of representation in this area enables us to draw upon the experience of our lawyers who are sensitive to these special concerns and who are accustomed to working in the context of family relationships and small business communities. We bring an active, interdisciplinary approach to these unique aspects of the family or closely-held concern, integrating the tax, estate planning and business law practices available within the firm and often working closely with other professionals, including financial advisors and family counselors.
