Harbinson Mulholland has a strong focus on working with family businesses in Northern Ireland and has built a solid reputation and track record of helping family businesses maximize financial performance, whilst balancing commercial challenges and family obligations.
As well as having our own dedicated family business team, we have also established the NI Family Business Forum. The forum has been created in response to feedback from local family businesses who sought to connect with other companies who also deal with the unique challenges and rewards that family businesses face.
The forum hosts regular events exclusively for family owned businesses, providing an opportunity to meet other business owners, hear stories from guest speakers and benefit from the skills of experts in this sector.
