We start with you— we customize solutions as unique as your family’s needs.
Continuity works exclusively with families that share ownership and management of important assets. Our comprehensive, interdisciplinary approach considers all facets of your enterprise to develop strategies that add the most value.
We incorporate the interests and concerns of all stakeholders to forge the alignment and trust needed to make timely and effective decisions. Our goal: Help family members act together to advance both shared and individual interests, while managing risk.
Along the way, we look for every opportunity to deepen understanding and family members’ commitment to one another. Our clear plans for action give our client families a road map to get them from where they are to where they want to be.
Consulting: 3 Phases
We analyze shared assets, businesses, agreements, interests, priorities, the marketplace, relationships, and communication.
We detail options and make customized recommendations to advance the enterprise and relationships toward a reliable future and resilience to conflict.
We guide families to consensus on an implementation path, getting commitment for real change and action.
An aligned, informed, and trusting family is the family business’ most important competitive advantage.
Our Hallmark: Solutions Now for a Resilient and Sustainable Future
Core to our work is an understanding that the main threat to families that share ownership of significant assets is poorly managed conflict. Tension and conflict are inherent in family enterprise; successful families learn how to work together through challenges along the way.
Whatever the focus of our work—be it succession planning, governance development, or wealth integration—our solutions are informed by our unique expertise in managing conflict in enterprising families. We make plans that help defuse current conflict and protect the health of your enterprise and relationships in the future.
Since 2003, Continuity Family Business Consulting has helped families around the world build connected, intentional and productive futures. Headquartered in Boston, our advisors offer extensive experience and training in business, family systems, and conflict management.
We know how to effectively integrate the expertise of estate planners, CPAs, key non-family executives, and family business stakeholders – both in and out of the business – to produce plans that work as well for the business as they do for the family.
