On Tuesday May 16th, 2017, Davis Wright Tremaine will host a Family Business Legacy Series featuring Mike Garvey and Rene' Ancinas.

Perhaps the greatest challenge a family business faces is the successful transition of ownership and management to the next generation.

Many business owners are unwilling or ill equipped to address the elephant in the room - that the status quo cannot continue forever. Failing to adequately and openly plan for transition can doom the prospects of the family business for the next generation. Yet ignoring the needs and concerns of the prior generation make effective transition almost impossible.

Please join our expert panel featuring Mike Garvey and Rene' Ancinas as they discuss these issues in the context of their own family businesses. Mike is the co-founder of Saltchuk Resources. Mike successfully led the transition of ownership to his daughters and management to two of his son-in-laws. Rene' is the chairman and CEO of Port Blakely, a fifth generation resources company. Rene' can share his insights about Port Blakely's multi-year management transition plan.

For questions and information about registration, please contact Tara Alvergue.
