    As legal counsel to many business-owning families, I’ve found Renkert-Thomas’s Engaged Ownership to be chock-full of practical advice for dealing with the inevitable challenges of transferring ownership of a family owned business through the generations. Based on her wealth of experience, Renkert-Thomas dispels many of the commonly held notions of best estate planning practices that in practice don’t translate well into the family business system. Her take on the business succession topic – engaged ownership – emphasizes that it’s more than money at stake, it’s relationships and a family’s shared purpose and values. Designing a structure that aims to develop family members into engaged owners requires a thoughtful process, and Renkert-Thomas lays out the why and how-to step by step. For example, the chapter “Allocating Power among Owners, Board, and Management” illuminates the crucial considerations in establishing governance in the complex web of relationships among family members and their companies. The book itself, like its title, is engaging, illustrating concepts with stories and diagrams. Owners and their team of advisors will be alerted to pitfalls and well-armed with solutions in this refreshing, astute and practical perspective on family business planning.
