Spearing Waite LLP signs exclusive partnership with Families in Business

Law firm Spearing Waite LLP has extended its support and service for Leicestershire’s family business sector by becoming an Exclusive Partner of Families in Business (FiB), the organisation dedicated to supporting family owned and run enterprises. The firm is the first legal practice in Leicestershire to join FiB’s growing network of top professional services firms and under the partnership will exclusively provide legal support to family firms based in the county. FiB works with family businesses and professional advisers throughout the UK to provide relevant help and support to family businesses and SMEs. Spearing Waite LLP has its head office in Leicester and is a full service commercial law firm, recently recognised by The Legal 500 as a ‘superb young dynamic practice’ with top quality lawyers. “According to our most recent research, there are three million family businesses in the UK, and over 230,000, that’s eight percent, of these have their head office in Leicestershire or the East Midlands,” comments Dani Saveker, CEO and founder of FiB. “Having led my own family’s business for more than seven years, I know very well the challenges facing family owned and run firms including succession planning, director’s duties, governance and shareholder agreements. It is vital to have a trusted and experienced law firm onside, especially one that is familiar with these challenges that are in many ways unique to a family business. Spearing Waite has excellent credentials in these areas, together with a reputation as a proven, and highly accomplished firm, with a legally agile and adept team. The firm is a significant, heavyweight addition to our network and will be a reliable legal lifeline for family businesses across Leicestershire.” Jonathan Wheeler, Managing Partner, at Spearing Waite, adds:  “Spearing Waite LLP is excited to become an exclusive partner of Families in Business.  Family businesses are core to our practice and we believe it is an exciting initiative aimed at creating a community in which family businesses can access trusted support from a range of experienced professionals.  The importance of family businesses to the local economy tends to be underestimated and undervalued.  They play a pivotal role and we believe we can contribute our experience and understanding to further assisting them in their growth, development and succession.” Via its growing community of professionals, advisers and family business leaders, FiB is regarded as a go-to organisation focused on providing help and support to family businesses. Created by its CEO Dani Saveker, it provides tailored support packages and programmes to member family businesses, and has a growing Exclusive Partners network that includes professional advisers and supporters of family businesses. FiB is an approved Growth Accelerator Training Provider. For more information: contact Dani Saveker, Tel: 07812 99 27 26, Email: dani@fibcommunity.com, or visit www.fibcommunity.com.
