Trusted advice since 1997
LGA helps families and their enterprises succeed from Generation to Generation. We advise families on all aspects of family enterprise, often as they face complex generational transitions. Our clients include Fortune 500 firms, mid-sized companies, and some of the oldest family businesses in the United States and Canada, Latin America, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.
We are committed to helping families oversee their businesses, foundations, and wealth management in the most effective and satisfying manner possible.
That is our professional mandate, and our personal passion.
As a result of our expertise in both organizational functioning and family dynamics, we are able to assist families across the spectrum of needs, addressing the governance, strategy, leadership, and process factors simultaneously.
We advise families on all aspects of governance and continuity for their enterprises.
Our typical clients include multi-generational families who govern operating or investment companies with revenues between US$500 million and $200 billion or more. Some are closely held and others are publicly traded, and many control large philanthropic foundations. We also have an “Emerging Enterprises” client group whose revenues range from $50 to $500 million, most often governed by founders and sibling partnerships.
We teach and lecture at universities, association meetings, webinars, conferences, and in private seminars and academies. We have special academic relationships with the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, the School of Management at Yale University and Harvard University, and we are involved in many other universities in the United States and abroad.
We also conduct research and publish findings on topics of relevance to family enterprise, sometimes at our own initiative, and other times sponsored by an individual client, association, or foundation.
We are a diverse group of family business consultants from all over the world who serve family enterprises through LGA.
All of our Associates bring multi-disciplinary knowledge and international experience to their projects. We believe that it is the blend of our individual strengths that provides the maximum value to our clients. Every project is assigned a lead consultant, and for larger systems, consulting teams are formed depending on the specific needs of the client. While only one or two consultants may actually be in the field with the client family, the entire group meets regularly to review each consultation and suggest effective strategies.
Our expansive resource library is separated into five major categories: writing, books, video, research and social.
Each section is filled with thought-provoking ideas and cases that reflect our understanding of family enterprise systems and the complex environments in which they operate.
We hope you find these insights useful and share them with others who may be interested.
