Family Businesses

We help families achieve the continuity of their entrepreneurial legacy

Most of our clients manage a portfolio of operating companies built around a shared entrepreneurial legacy.

They include some of the largest and oldest enterprising families in the United States and Canada, Latin America, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.

Their revenues typically range from $250 million to over $100 billion, and they are active across a range of industries and geographies.

What they all have in common is a desire to achieve continuity across generations, and a recognition that past success is no guarantee for the future.

Achieving multi-generational continuity takes considerable time and effort, and every generation needs to develop its own unique plan for growth and renewal – balancing the legacies of the past with the opportunities and challenges of the future.

Featured Insights


Jobs vs. Wealth

Family leaders must have the courage and stamina to create an inclusive, participative, and results-driven culture in the family and business, supported by the right policies and systems. Such a foundation will set the stage for a family legacy which both sustains across multiple future generations, and grows along the way with each group driving growth and diversification and making its own mark.


Growing up Green

Why is it hard to find good successors? We believe that the root issues occur earlier in the lives of next-gen members, linked to the manner in which they experience their family’s wealth and legacy during adolescence and early adulthood.


Philanthropy in Complex, Multi-Generational Families

For many, family philanthropy presents an opportunity to create a shared experience, unifying the
family by working together toward a lasting legacy of impact. Family philanthropy can also give
participants an opportunity to explore and cultivate their personal—and sometimes separate—
philanthropic passions
