Family businesses account for two thirds of firms within the UK private sector and generate 25% of UK GDP every year. These businesses can range from large multinational corporations to small retail outlets.
Farleys Solicitors understand that there are significant challenges faced by family businesses that are simply not faced by other businesses. Our solicitors recognise the need for a different approach when dealing with clients from a family business in order to deal with their matters appropriately. For example, managing disputes or shareholder agreements can be particularly sensitive when they are occurring between members of the same family meaning family relations as well as business relations can be affected by the outcome.
Our family business solicitors have a wide range of experience with dealing with clients from family businesses across many different industries. We can work closely with you to provide legal advice tailored to your specific needs and reach a suitable resolution.
Our legal services for Family Businesses include:

To ensure the preservation of your family business through the generations, expert legal advice is vital. Farleys’ experienced solicitors can draw up contracts and agreements as well as advice on handing your business over through succession planning. If your business is struggling, we can also advise on corporate recovery and insolvency and ensure there is a professional with you every step of what can be a difficult time.
