The International Association of Attorneys for Family-Held Enterprises (afhe) is an independent, non-profit association of attorneys, practicing in the areas of corporate, litigation, taxation, and trusts and estates who provide multi-disciplinary legal counsel and advice to publicly and privately-held enterprises, their owner-managers, and family members. The organization serves as a resource for individuals, business entities, trade associations, the business press, and other groups seeking information concerning attorneys with the experience, expertise, and qualifications to address privately-held business issues. afhe members focus on the establishment, growth, and success of family-held enterprise, the engine behind entrepreneurship. 

Family businesses are essentially the same around the world in their contributions to the long-term financial and social stability of their communities and their nations. The attorneys who practice in family business law are reestablishing the traditional role of legal counselor to these businesses, viewing the entire business life-cycle of their clients' firms as relevant to business and legal decisions made today.
