With our extensive experience counseling family-owned companies and other privately held businesses, our team can assist wineries and vineyards from start-ups to seasoned operations. We help clients plan for business opportunities (including acquisitions and joint ventures), negotiate commercial agreements, cost-effectively resolve disputes, and provide strategic and practical advice on a wide range of issues impacting our clients’ business.
