Family-controlled firms continue to thrive and engage with the global economy which heightens the need to adapt to new business models while addressing the unique leadership and succession issues they face.

Our global, cross-sector team offers customized strategic solutions to family-controlled businesses that are coping with transitions and the distinctive situations they encounter. Through decades of experience, we have defined key offerings and actionable insights on what sets the best family-controlled firms apart, and we share those insights with our clients. We also address the balance between the needs of the company and the level of family involvement.

Family Business Board Advisory Services

We advise on corporate governance for family-controlled firms.

Our Board Advisory consultants partner with family firms on their journey to building a capable and experienced leadership team. Below is a brief summary of our process:

  • Hire an independent chairman
  • Identify the range of competencies, experiences, and perspectives needed
  • Build a board that can balance long-term family shareholder interests with short-term advice on governance and strategy
This method results in an agile board that serves as a true strategic asset to management while reflecting the company’s agenda in terms of composition, diversity, and effectiveness.
