Our business attorneys work to enhance the opportunities and avoid the obstacles faced by family and closely held businesses.
Ninety-five percent of American businesses are family-owned. Those family-owned businesses generate 40% of the Gross National Product. Yet only 57% of owners of family-controlled businesses intend to transfer the business to family members. Only 30% of family businesses survive into the second generation. More than 50% of the business owners have more than half of their wealth tied up in their business.
These statistics demonstrate the great business opportunities that can be found in closely held businesses as well as the need for guidance to navigate the inherent pitfalls that can trap the unwary. Closely held businesses are often small to medium-size business enterprises where all shareholders tend to be active in the management of the business. The closely held corporate structure can provide advantages such as limited liability for shareholders and S corporation election for tax purposes while retaining many of the simplified, less formal operating procedures of sole proprietorships and partnerships. Our business attorneys focus on the needs of closely held businesses, including how to avoid legal disputes, how to avoid personal liability, the importance of well drafted buy-sell agreements, the value of thoughtful succession and exit planning, and understanding shareholder disputes or business divorces and how to best resolve them. We bring the expertise of an in-house counsel to our clients; serving as the “outside” general counsel by providing prompt, responsive and cost effective advice on a spectrum of legal needs.

“Every client has a different story, a unique family situation and goals that are unlike anyone else’s. It is our job as attorneys to listen carefully and help you design a plan for the future.”
At Lommen Abdo, we measure our success by our clients’ success. In the estate planning section, that means we listen to you, answer your questions, and develop an estate plan that meets your goals and objectives. Whether your estate is large, small or somewhere in between, whether you have relatively simple or complex family and business interests, we have the skills and resources you can always count on at our law firm.
None of us knows with certainty when — or if — we will need incapacity planning. We do not know when we will need an estate plan. At Lommen Abdo, we do know the peace of mind that an estate plan can bring to clients and to their families and other heirs.
Having the right documents in place to deal with any contingency is especially critical for those in second marriages, those who are widowed, those with a special needs spouse or child, those in non–traditional relationships, those with business succession responsibilities, or those with minor children.
