Conflict unique to Family Businesses

Family owned businesses have unique characteristics that other businesses do not share. The following are some of the issues that mediation can address:

  • Business management issues (sibling or intergenerational conflict)
  • Succession planning among generations
  • Collaborative planning ("Partnering") for family businesses

Whether family owned or not, these are only some of the ways conflict in business can be costly. And if the conflict makes its way to litigation, the financial and emotional consequences can cost even more.

Angela Mercier is a Qualified Mediator (Q.Med)

Along with her expertise and experience, she also brings compassion and commitment to the table. Angela helps clients resolve financial disagreements in ways that are non-adversarial, fair and in the best interests of all.

Mediation is a method of resolving disputes between two or more parties.

Since the 1990s, the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) method has been a proven way to guide corporations, business owners and employees through difficult financial challenges. Designed to defuse conflict and promote communication, ADR methods avoid the hostilities litigation can create. Also, they preserve important assets litigation can consume.

A mediator is a third-party neutral who helps create a settlement agreed to by all. Mediators do not give legal advice, take sides, or pass judgment.
