Customized Legal Advice For Family Businesses And Succession Planning
At Brawn Karras & Sanderson, our belief is that family businesses form the foundation of strong communities. They have the potential to outperform nonfamily firms and to succeed where other businesses fail in tough economies. But capitalizing on their inherent strengths and opportunities requires successfully navigating the challenges unique to family enterprises.
Our principal, Kim Karras, is a certified family enterprise advisor (FEA). As one of the few lawyers in South Surrey-White Rock and the Fraser Valley with this qualification, she is well-positioned to provide strategic legal advice within the specific context of family-run businesses.
