What our clients say
"FBS worked with both generations of our family and the board of directors to help us develop a Family Constitution. This now helps guide us in many areas of importance to the family and the business. There’s a lot of work involved in creating a constitution and it was essential for us to have the right information and advice to ensure that ours would last for a long time.

Family businesses continue to face a unique set of challenges as a result of the pandemic. Business leaders have faced many difficult decisions such as furloughing staff and company restructures, and for those families who have been living and working together during this period, it’s likely to have been even more stressful.
With many businesses now returning to some kind of normality, cash flow and forward planning are sure to be top priorities.

You’re an established family business, proud of what has been built, and optimistic about its long term future, however the current situation driven by the Covid-19 pandemic means survival has become part of your current thinking.
How can you plan and prepare both business and family for ‘the future’ when short term ‘survival’ has become the recent focus? What could the future look like, and how should you plan for it at the moment? Time changes everything in family businesses and the current pandemic can’t stop the inevitable. In fact, it may be just the right moment to think about what the future holds and make some of the necessary changes.
