Family and Closely Held Businesses
More often than not, family and closely held businesses have, by their own design, a small number of shareholders who play a very important part in the success of the business. This also means that the business should consider protecting itself from unforeseen risks. Axenfeld can advise you through your shareholder agreements, buy-sell agreements, and other succession planning issues unique to businesses of this type.
And sometimes, because family and closely held businesses inherently run part-and-parcel with family dynamics, disputes may arise. Our lawyers are also experienced in resolving family and closely held business disputes.
