sophisticated Agreements Among Family Business Owners: A Process Approach to Negotiations Among Unequals

Multi-generational business families face a daunting task when negotiating complex legal agreements among family members. Traditional models of representation can become divisive or unduly expensive in such areas as buy/sell agreements, contracts for the sale of shares, mutual confidentiality agreements and the like. The process for creating agreements that seek to bind family members (whose relationships are neither arm's length nor free from significant pressures unrelated to the contract at issue) deserves advance planning. Steve will discuss a "top down" process approach that facilitates an efficient, focused negotiation among a diverse group of family business owners.
