What is a Family Business Lawyer®, and why does it matter?


Small and family-owned businesses face unique challenges not found in larger corporations. The goals in these companies often go further and deeper than simply maximizing profits for shareholders; creating a profitable, sustainable business that supports an owner's vision not just for the next fiscal year, but for generations to come, requires a different approach that is sensitive to the uniqueness of each business and family issues that are typically ignored in a large corporate setting.


Family Business Lawyers know that advising a small or family business owner requires more than just knowledge of substantive corporate and estate planning legal principles, but a deep understanding of the psychology of small businesses.  We identify with the drive to succeed, and the anxiety of making sure our families are provided for. In fact, most of us are family business owners ourselves. We are not simply document preparers, but trusted legal advisors.  Relationships are crucial for us; after all, we aim to be your lawyer for life.


How does this benefit your family and your business?  We shun the one-size-fits all approach and don't try to squeeze you and your business into a preset mold.  We take the time to learn about you, your business, and your family so that we can proactively and accurately forecast trouble on the horizon and steer you clear of it. We help organize your business and family wealth so you can fully leverage a work-life harmony that fits your lifestyle, while minimizing legal risk to your business and emotional risk to your loved ones. We make sure you are properly positioned for growth so you can make decisions on a moment's notice and don't miss opportunities you weren't ready for.


Satin Legal is proud to be designated by the Family Wealth Planning Institute as a Family Business Lawyer. Come talk to us to see how we can become your lawyer for life!
