Solicitors with knowledge and expertise for family businesses
The Wrigleys Family Business team provides strategic and legal advice to a large number of family business owners.
Family businesses face unique challenges when balancing the needs of the family with the needs of the business. These challenges increase in times of inter-generational change and when businesses adapt to market pressures.
How can we help you as a family business owner?
We can help families to:
- Identify their business and family values;
- Develop their vision for the future and create their governance structures and succession strategy; and
- Ensure family members buy-in to the family vision so that governance structures remain relevant to the family's changing circumstances.
Our aim is to help clients preserve their family businesses, which have often been held for many generations, so they thrive for generations to come.
We have specialist knowledge in many niche areas affecting family businesses:
- Family Values
- Next Generation
- Philanthropy and charities
- Employee ownership
- Capital taxes
- Family constitutions
- Pre-nuptial agreements
