Microphone with BokehThis Monday, October 17th, Seattle University’s Albers School of Business and Economics is hosting the latest of its Family Business Exchange Events. This installment features:
  • Amy Burns of Anthony’s Restaurants
  • Denise Moriguchi of Uwajimaya
  • Casey Schuchart of Schuchart Construction
  • A.J. Televen of Sprague Pest Solutions
The Family Business Exchange Events are only open to family business owners and managers, so it is a great opportunity for this community to come together and share their experiences and wisdoms without pressure from service providers or others. At Davis Wright Tremaine, we are proud to have collaborated with Seattle University in their work with local family businesses. We expect this event – like their events in the past – will be a great success and a worthwhile use of your time. If you know anything about these thriving Northwest family businesses, you know these individuals represent the next generation of ownership and leadership. Their respective companies also represent the best in thoughtful and intentional succession planning – a challenge for all family businesses.   Drew Steen is a business transactions attorney at Davis Wright Tremaine, LLP.  He represents both buy-side and sell-side clients in mergers and acquisitions, venture capital investments, joint ventures, equity co-investments and restructurings.  He also serves as regular corporate counsel for several closely-held and family-owned companies.  Drew can be reached via email at andrewsteen@dwt.com or directly at 206.757.8081.
