As family business advisors, SKM Associates has the skills and experience needed to guide business families through the unique challenges inherent in combining familial relationships with the bottom-line desire for profitability and long-term success in a commercial enterprise.

Many firms that advise families focus only on tangible business or financial issues. Our focus is on the family and how its members manage communication, planning, and business practices and still protect and enjoy the mutual encouragement and support of a family.

Our process focuses on factors that interfere with business issues and on the interpersonal challenges the family firm faces as they  function in a business that has become a way of life. The process develops a safe environment to discuss difficult issues.
