Family businesses

Family businesses

Family businesses, whose operations and strategies are controlled by families with a desire for generational continuity and future growth, are a pillar of wealth creation and a driver of the Spanish economy. 

Family firms face challenges for their continuity, such as succession, the hiring of external, non-family managers, growth, internationalisation, and maintaining family control. By handling and implementing these decisions effectively, such businesses can grow and become stronger over time. 

At Aledra, we offer family businesses a comprehensive service, providing solutions tailored to their unique circumstances and offering singular, practical, and effective responses to specific situations.

To do so, we rely on teams specialised in commercial, corporate, labour, and tax law for family businesses, taking a professional approach with the sensitivity required to manage complex interfamily relationships. 


  • Design of a family protocol to regulate the family’s functions in the governance, management, and ownership bodies of the company.
  • Mediation in potential family disputes.
  • Design and implementation of structures to reduce business and family taxation.
  • Ongoing tax advice.
  • Management planning in the event of sudden disability or death.
  • Structuring of the transmission and administration of assets by succession.
  • Financial arrangements for marriages and domestic partnerships involving members of the business family.
  • Preparation of partner agreements to protect the family business.
  • Legal advice on financing the family business.
  • Corporate restructuring and reorganisation.
  • Advice on the removal of partners and the process of selling the company.
  • Design of organisational changes to integrate the family and business strategy with professionalised management.
  • Implementation of incentive systems and variable remuneration linked to objectives.
