Building Your Business: Talking Ownership Transitions with Bill Mandel and Laura Howard

Bill Mandel and Laura Terry Howard, of MBV Law, talk ownership transitions for architecture, design and engineering firms. Image Anne Hamersky/courtesy MBV LawRecently, we brought you the story of Nadel Architects ownership transition, as part of our continuing series on building and growing your business. We were intrigued by the process and wanted to get more details on the nuts and bolts of ownership transitions in general.
