Family businesses form the foundation of many communities in Queens, and they play an important role in the lives and livelihoods of many of our clients. Because a family business involves the complicated combination of commerce and close personal relationships, it is essential to have proper legal guidance when it comes to estate planning and business planning.
Some family-owned businesses are passed on from generation to generation. Other businesses are sold to or managed by people outside the family. If you are exploring your options for the future ownership or management of your business, our firm can assist you.
