LawMatters- February 2018

How do you prepare for the unexpected? It all depends on how you define it. For some businesses, what is unknown or unpredictable is a source of incalculable financial and legal risk. For others, it is a wellspring of opportunity and innovation. The same is true in our personal lives: what seems like spontaneity to some may come across as poor planning to others, and every family must find its own balance between living in comfort today and achieving security for generations to come.
