Family Business Mediation
Conflict with anyone is upsetting, but conflict with family is even more so. Family is supposed to be there for you through thick and thin.
So, what happens when you have a disagreement over the family business? Those are two of the most important things in your life – family and livelihood. Of course, you want to make a decision that works for everyone, which ensures the viability of the business while preserving the family relationships. With so much at stake, that resolution seems elusive.
You need skilled, expert guidance, and most importantly, someone that you can trust. Berner Law & Mediation Group have been resolving family conflict peacefully for over 25 years and have the expertise necessary to guide families through the intricate maze of family business conflict resolution. Mediation is a family-centered process in which an impartial third party meets with the relevant family members to help them reach a mutual and informed agreement for the terms of their dispute. Often family mediations will touch on long-standing family issues and tensions. The opportunity to voice complaints, share a perspective, and better understand specific behaviors can help participants let go of past resentments or other emotional obstacles and redirect their focus toward resolution. Family Business mediation carries the potential to improve communication and to preserve or restore relationships, all while making the best plan possible for all relatives and employees affected.
