Family Business Considerations

The sale of a family business can be an excellent opportunity to address the often competing needs of family businesses:

  • retained family ownership;

  • on-going employment for family members;

  • family legacy in the community;

  • distribution of sale proceeds among active and inactive family members;

  • management succession between generations;

  • potential introduction of non-family management.
