The Word From D.C.–It Takes a Team

I am writing this blog piece while attending the annual conference of Attorneys for Family Held Enterprises (AFHE) in Washington D.C. Each year’s conference brings together a multidisciplinary group of family business advisors, financial planners, psychologists and attorneys–representatives of AFHE’s wide membership base.

One of the organization’s underlying missions is to promote the well being and sustainability of business families. AFHE understands that family businesses are complex because families are complex; that seeing their challenges as business issues alone and addressing them from the perspective of any single professional discipline will fall egregiously short of achieving this aim. The best success comes from the collaborative efforts of experts.
