  • “Common Roadblocks and Paths for Resolution in Family-Owned Business Disputes”
    October 16, 2019 - October 16, 2019

    Best Practice event sponsored by the Delaware Valley Family Business Center, 8:30 to 10 a.m., at Fox Rothschild LLP, Blue Bell Pa. Legal disputes can be disruptive, time-consuming, and expensive. These disagreements usually come from three Ps:

    • Paper: We disagree on some of the key documents we have on file
    • Process: We disagree on who makes decisions and how they get made
    • People: We find ourselves in conflict and lack clear communication and understanding about what to do next

    Family members who work together will inevitably have conflict. These three areas are common roadblocks that many family businesses face. Bill Wanger of Fox Rothschild and DVFBC advisers will discuss these common roadblocks and ways to move past them with clarity and understanding. For information, see the event web page.
