We believe every family should be able to enjoy what they have,

know where they are going,

and make the most of their lives together.

We help families untangle the complexity of sharing business and other assets. It’s not uncommon for enterprising families like yours to get stuck, angry, or worry about the future. So while your legacy and goals are unique, the challenges you face are like those we’ve helped families overcome for more than 15 years.

Continuity Family Business Consulting is a specialized team of family business consultants and family advisors who combine expertise in business and family systems with a deep understanding of the type of conflict affecting enterprising families and families of wealth.

We help families achieve continuity—greater peace, harmony, and success.

Our Areas of Expertise


After we spoke with Continuity, we knew it was the right choice for our family.

We appreciated the rapport between our family and Continuity’s consultant. He went to great lengths to understand our situation and was always impartial and fair.

Continuity helped us achieve more clarity on what we wanted, what was possible, and better communication. It also helped us better understand each other by helping us consider a different perspective.

The compassion, dedication, and insights of our consultant exceeded our expectations.
