About Barbara Wells

Director/Shareholder Barb Wells is an experienced business lawyer and advisor to local, national and international companies, but she considers herself a teacher at heart. "I teach every day," she says. "One on one, whether counseling a client on some aspect of their business or mentoring a younger lawyer. I love the challenge of helping someone simply and clearly understand a complex idea or way of doing something." Clients seek Barb's help overcoming barriers and taking advantage of opportunities for business growth. She helps clients – including family-owned businesses – with a variety of issues, such as: • Tax planning • Joint ventures • Bonuses and incentives • Exit and succession planning • Employment law • Business sales and purchases Clients frequently turn to her for help with planning for the next non-family or family generation of owners of a business. She works with clients on: • Buy-sell, deferred compensation, stock rights, partnership and governance agreements and their tax consequences • Transitioning to the next generation and considering a sale to the outside world • Restructuring the business to protect the business owner and the component business pieces. • According to her clients, Barb provides practical advice in the most responsive manner. For example, she helped a client considering an investment in a shopping center who came to her for advice on issues to consider. In this and other ways, she is an “outside General Counsel” to many of her clients…from start-up, to the day they sell their company.
