Family Business

We act for (and in many cases have done so for generations) a large number of family businesses across a wide range of sectors including JCT600, J N Bentley, Emerald Group, Pavers and Reed Boardall.

Gordons’ specialist family business lawyers know the unique requirements of any size or type of family business. Whether the business is first generation and still controlled by a founding owner, second generation with control shared by a group of close relatives or third generation or more where the control has passed to a wider network of families with some family members involved and others not.

We understand the challenges that are associated with bringing non family members into senior management positions, diluting the family shareholdings by introducing outside investment, transitioning ownership to the next generation and preserving wealth for the individual family members.
