Family businesses have their own dynamics. Doing business with family involves emotions and relationships that are seldom at play in other companies. That is why it is all the more important to document matters properly so that everyone is prepared for the future and for different scenarios. Other stakeholders such as shareholders and supervisory authorities may also play a role. Working with an adviser who knows the company, its interests and the people involved well, is valuable.
