Andrew & Co Solicitors, Family Business Lawyers in Lincoln and Newark.
Our expert teams of passionate people have the knowledge and experience you need in all areas of Family Business Law. Call us to day for advice across all generations of your family business.
We act for many family owned businesses, with some dating back well over 150 years. In the UK, family run businesses account for 75% of all SME's and dominate the farming industry and much of that number is based in Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire.
Family businesses are truly unique in that they are often able to offer more to both their customers and employees because of the characteristics they embrace and the benefits family ownership can bring. They also, however, face all the challenges of any other business alongside the problems that can arise as a consequence of being in business with parents, husbands or wives, siblings, children or wider family members. Less than 10% of family businesses make it beyond the third generation and our experience is that succession planning is the greatest challenge faced by family businesses. The pitfalls and problems are many and varied but rarely unique, even though it may feel like that at the time.
A Collaborative Approach
Our Family Business Team comprises lawyers from a wide range of disciplines. To provide the best advice, our solicitors collaborate with each other to develop the right strategies and solutions for our clients. We also have strong relationships with other professional advisers and organisations who work with family businesses, which furthers our ability to provide the advice and support that is needed.
We are able to provide our family business clients with a wide-range of services, including:
- succession planning
- sales and acquisitions
- governance issues
- resolving disputes both in and out of the business
- setting up trusts and other personal wealth protection matters
- commercial contracts
- commercial property
- divorce and the family business
- agricultural and farming advice
