Family Business Mediator

Call (888) 844-9530 to Learn the Benefits of Mediation

Family businesses have the potential for great good—sometimes it means you can work with people you trust, keep earnings in the family, and provide gainful employment for the people who you love most. However, there is also great potential for serious and significant conflicts to arise regarding issues related to a family business.

If that happens, it can be quite difficult to untangle the complicated layers to the situation. What one family member believes is in the best interest of the business, another family member may think is harmful to the business or family unit. Sometimes sibling rivalry or distrust among family members can complicate decision-making. Other times, the hierarchy of authority within the business can become muddied by family dynamics and values, or vice versa.

All of these issues and more can easily lead to disagreements, hurt feelings, and distrust. When family members feel they cannot agree, they face the dilemma of whether they can maintain both the health of the business and of the family.
