When a business partnership is experiencing serious conflict it is a very personal and painful experience for everyone involved. From the partners, to the employees, to the vendors, clients, and even family members notice the strain and drain on the companies productivity and financial and personal resources.
Partnerships are some of the most closely held companies in America. By their very nature ideas, emotions and feelings are strongly held and intensely felt. The running of the business has a direct financial and personal impact on the lives of partners. Alternative Law’s Partnership mediation consists of a system designed into 3 basic components. The first step is the historical basis for the conflict, which leads to a very detailed issue identification. As this part of the process, all the real, and even perceived or misperceived issues are thoroughly explored to separate truth from fiction, feelings from reality, the past from the present and the future.
Alternative Law’s resolution system is about today and the future. What do we do now, and how do we get there.
In both group and in private sessions, all parties receive ample opportunity to express in detail their concerns, problems, and identify potential roadblocks. Their ideas and perceptions are discussed, challenged, and debated in order to develop and determine the best ideas The second phases is the development of realistic alternatives for problem resolution. During this phase we will analyze and provide a cost benefit analysis, determine the basis for various approaches, and proceed first to clearly separate and identify the issues. In a very systematic, step by step system, we will enter the last phase, where either as a group or independently we will develop very practical solutions to both the stated concerns and the real underlying issues. Most matters settle and almost always without the costs of litigation.
The impact of strife and disagreement can reverberate throughout the entire business. Partnership mediation provides for a smoother transition in advance. It is a better way to resolve conflicts, enhance the workings of your existing business, restore working relationships, and reduce personality conflicts. If there are no other options left, we can provide a clear path for dissolution if necessary, without having to enter litigation process.
