William Messinger
William Messinger, Partner
William Messinger advises family businesses, trustees and families on addiction issues regarding employees, beneficiaries and family members. Bill uses highly successful recovery programs for physicians as a model for his work with clients. These programs use leverage or pressure to encourage the addict to enter treatment and comply with post-treatment recommendations – the key to long-term recovery.

Bill believes addiction is the number one risk to family businesses and beneficiaries. Therefore, he helps clients develop language to insert in trusts, business documents and other governance provisions to effectively address addiction. For more information see his website at
