It is not unusual for business partners and family business members to find themselves in conflict over business or personal issues. Even in the best relationships, each individual’s needs, perspectives, and feelings are unique. This can result in differences, even conflicts, among the partners when critical decisions have to be made.
How conflicts are resolved in family businesses and other partnerships is critical. Preserving relationships is often as important as resolving the issues at hand. There is so much to lose if working and personal ties are shattered. Litigation can result in imposed solutions that leave everyone unhappy. Threats and manipulation can do terminal damage.
Mediation is the ideal route for addressing difficult issues among partners in business disputes and family business conflicts. It is a process designed to improve relationships even as it resolves specific problems. BMC Associates is the leader in helping family businesses and other partnerships resolve conflict using this productive and efficient method.
