Dispute Management and Resolution
This session will focus on business disputes as they arise in the context of closely held family businesses. In this instance they can have particularly long term and far reaching consequences. We will be exploring this notion from a lawyers perspective by considering:
- Who has legal rights.
- The claims that are often brought.
- How conflicts often play out, and strategies that are commonly employed.
- The role of non-lawyers in the process.
- Things to think about to attempt to minimise the impact of the conflict.
