The term “Significant Business Challenges” refers to sudden company developments such as the loss of key customers and suppliers, the introduction of new competitors, and the emergence of new business opportunities. It also refers to slower developing issues such as declining margins, an aging workforce, new market channels, and product obsolescence. What these challenges often have in common is that they need to be addressed by companies with limited personnel and time. Lightfoot Group works with business owners and their business counsel regarding management and ownership transitions and dispute resolution. Given their importance, these appear as separate Lightfoot Group service areas on this website.
