Margie Bodas, Lommen Abdo's Vice President of Practice Management, said that the firm is taking several strategic steps to increase its footprint in the area of closely held and family owned businesses.  Lommen Abdo is committed to providing effective and efficient counsel across the legal spectrum to such operations, serving in a role similar to in-house counsel for those companies who either are not ready to hire their own in-house counsel or who choose not to do so.  The firm will also continue to provide educational seminars on closely-held and family-owned business issues, drilling down on issues raised and discussed briefly at the Closely Held Business Seminar held at Elsie's Restaurant Bar & Bowling Center last October.  More than 100 people attended that seminar.  For more information on Lommen Abdo's Closely Held group, watch Lommen Abdo's video on closely held and family-owned businesses and visit the firm's Closely Held Business Law web page
