The FBN was founded on the principal that no one firm can be an expert in all areas of professional services for Family Businesses, as the complexities of taxation, corporate law, estate planning, wealth management, succession planning, insurance funding, capital raising, business sale or IPO strategies etc are all areas of expertise in their own right.

The FBN’s founding members are Tony Kofkin {Managing Partner; Kofkin Bond & Co}, Jo Walters {Principal; MacPherson Kelley Lawyers} and Ben Simon {Partner; Rose Partners Accountants} all specialize in certain areas of their chosen careers working with companies that have turnovers up to and in excess of $500 mill p.a.

But we have also realized, that even our expertise is limited when considering all areas that business owners need to address on a day to day basis, which Is why we have invited other experts in their chosen professionals.

As a result, the FBN has brought together some of Australia’s leading practitioners in their chosen fields, to not only look after the business owners or company directors, but also one of their most valuable assets being their employees.


Our focus on practical and cost-effective solutions form the cornerstone of the technical assistance and consulting activities performed by FBN members and most importantly you have all of your business advisors working collaboratively together to ensure your best interests are the basis of all advice in all areas.

Decades of practical experience are at your disposal to assist with your efforts to meet the on-going demands of growing and benefiting from your hard work in owning a company.
