Family Business Mediation

family business mediation

Family business conflict is challenging. The needs and interests of the family can be very different from that of the business, and family members frequently find it difficult to achieve a balance between them or keep them separate. When family conflicts spill over into the workplace or when family members bring their work-related issues home, relationships can be strained and productivity can be undermined.

In a facilitated family business meeting or in mediation, we can help family members:

  • Separate family issues from those that are about the business
  • Maintain trust and cooperation among family members
  • Strengthen sibling relationships
  • Clarify expectations and values between generations

Common issues that might be addressed include:

  • Compensation
  • Dividend distribution
  • Communication
  • Succession planning
  • Allocation of responsibilities
  • Estate planning
  • Family/non-family management conflicts
  • Working vs. non-working family members
  • Ownership planning
  • Family issues /relationships
  • Philanthropy
