Family Portrait


It's not just business. It's...

A family business is rewarding, but it also comes with its own challenges and unique circumstances. Add the pressure of creating a legacy or building on an already established legacy and you become acutely aware that you are responsible for a whole lot more than just a business. If this sounds familiar, then FBLP is the place for you.


We faithfully support families and small business owners in southeastern Wisconsin who have the unique and rewarding experience of being in business together.
