Family Business Disputes

Family businesses are created through good relationships, unfortunately the preservation of such relationships can be difficult to maintain leading to families falling out for a variety of reasons, placing disastrous effects on a business and its continuance, when it is a family member it makes the dispute that little bit more complicated, possibly drawing other family members into it, whereby sides have to be taken.
