  3. Milwaukee Business Journal’s Family-Owned Business Event

Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren again sponsored the Milwaukee Business Journal’s Family-Owned Business Event, providing an opportunity for attendees to interact with a panel of successful family-owned business leaders and network with other family-owned companies.

Participants listened, learned and asked questions of business peers who are on similar journeys while dealing with the added complexity of mixing family with business. The panel discussion included a Q&A with the audience.

Attendees heard case studies from business experts, including Reinhart attorney Gregory F. Monday, that describe business problems unique to family-owned companies, along with solutions to successfully address the challenges.

Following the panel discussion, Reinhart attorneys Gregory F. Monday and Wendy S. Rusch presented a breakout session on the importance of smart governance structures in multi-generational family businesses.
