Company Types

Whether you’re publicly or privately owned, large or small, we have a wide array of services to meet your needs. Not to mention that we always customize our offerings for every client to ensure the best outcomes and success. 

Family Businesses

Family ties run deep, and that’s never truer than with family businesses. We help family businesses of all sizes navigate the waters of conflict, ownership transitions and more with the care and understanding we’d want shown to our own families.

Overall, family-owned businesses outperform public companies in terms of ROI, building on strong family values, commitment and family harmony. While tensions and conflicts are an ongoing risk to a family business, the largest periodic risk is the transition from one generation to the next. A full 66% of family businesses don’t make that transition successfully.

Working with the family (and non-family members at times), CMA can help reduce the risk that occurs during transition by planning, executing and following through on this transition of leadership and ownership. We have strong relationships with the many disciplines required for a successful generational transition, including legal, financial, tax and insurance.

We also host forums where you can network and share ideas with others who run their own family businesses, getting another inside perspective into the unique challenges you face.
