Although “you can’t choose your family”, many people do choose to go into business with family members, bringing a unique set of challenges to running a successful business. Differences between family members can be difficult to resolve, especially when spouses, children and questions of succession interplay in decisions and dynamics.

The intricate nature of family business dynamics often attracts significant public attention – be it the various media dynasties fictionalised in ‘Succession’, or the family’s power struggle as portrayed in ‘House of Gucci’.

If the intricacies of family disputes are aired in the public eye, and ultimately in court, reputations can be damaged irreparably. Protecting clients as they navigate litigation, mediation and the court of public opinion is critical to building a coalition of supporters that can advocate for the disputing parties for years to come.

Join us to discuss the complex challenges of family business dynamics and disputes with distinguished panellists from the fields of litigation, mediation, consultancy and strategic communication.
