Mediation for Family-Owned Businesses
Do You Need a Mediator’s Help for Your Family Business?
The heart of our communities are family-owned businesses. They may be small or large, but family is family. Fathers and mothers may want their sons and daughters to follow in their footsteps to keep the business going. But what if they don’t want to? That gives rise to the question of business succession planning.
What if there are questions about the internal operations of the company? How are you going to keep those from interfering with how the business is run? Or what if the board of directors doesn’t get along?
