Our NextGen Group's goals are simple: (i) provide families with access to investment opportunities, and (ii) create customized structures and practices to preserve and create multi-generational wealth and achieve corporate, family, and social objectives.

Group Leader:

Patrick W. Duval (Chair; D&S Founder; Corporate Chair)

Affiliated Investment Network: 

  • Family Office Real Estate Advantage Network - a family-to-family referral network

  • Social Impact Investor Advantage Network – a network for referring social impact investment opportunities to families


Our NextGen Group collaborates with (i) family offices and businesses that are owned and/or operated by families; and (ii) social impact investors and advisors.   Our primary goals are simple:

(a)   provide families, social impact investors and social impact advisors with access to quality investment opportunities through our extensive relationships with investors, lenders, operators, developers, purchasers, sellers, owners and service providers, who understand their businesses, and

(b)   create customized solutions to preserve and create multi-generational wealth and achieve corporate, family, and social objectives.

We recognize that effective legal representation of family offices, family-run businesses and social impact investments require a wide range of experiences and skills that do not fit within any traditional legal practice group.  Our NextGen Group brings together sophisticated transactional, governance, real estate, tax, not-for-profit, and environmental expertise to not only address the unique sensitivities and needs of each situation and matter, but also to create new structures, investment networks, and products that can provide new ideas and opportunities for achieving sustainable long-term goals.
