Scott E. Friedman will be speaking on the topic of family businesses. 

As the Managing Partner of Lippes Mathias Wexler Friedman LLP in Buffalo, Scott dedicates a large part of his practice to consulting with family businesses across the United States. He enjoys learning about each family he works with - and their unique circumstances - so that, together, they can create a plan to enhance their prospects for ensuring a healthy business and happy family members, from generation to generation.

He has published several books on this topic. He has enjoyed continuing to learn about families in business together and the research that goes into each of his books has helped him to develop new planning strategies that are now part of the curriculum at the University at Buffalo's Family Business Center, where he is an Executive in Residence. These same strategies are used in his consulting business, Next Gen Advisors, LLC.

Pat McGrath will be doing an A&A update.

Patricia A. McGrath, CPA, is a principal in the Accounting & Auditing and Small Business Departments of Tronconi Segarra & Associates, LLP.

Pat served as a past president of the Buffalo Chapter of the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants and continues to be highly involved in that organization, currently serving as Chair of the Accounting & Auditing Committee.
