Sooner or later, all businesses deal with disputes among their owners. When these disputes happen, family and closely held businesses face unique challenges. Because their ownership groups are relatively small in size and are often related by either blood or marriage, personal conflicts among constituents can have a much larger impact on family and closely held businesses than they might at larger companies. Egos, failures to effectively communicate, and differing opinions or philosophies may cause problems that can halt a business in its tracks.
In this session, attorneys Brian Dillon, Loren Hansen, and Ryan Gerads will examine the most common causes of litigation involving closely held or family-owned businesses, ways to prevent disagreements from developing among the stakeholders in these types of businesses, and the role of succession planning in keeping these businesses intact for future generations.
