Family Business Mediation

Helping family businesses resolve conflicts

Private and Family Business Mediation

What is Family Business Mediation?

Family mediation, using a third-party neutral, is used to help facilitate discussion with regards to conflict, management, succession planning and is becoming a more common alternative to settling disputes for small businesses in Canada. Professionally conducted mediation is proving to be a valuable tool to aid entrepreneurs in preserving the well-being of the family business and all of the relationships involved.

The number of family businesses in Canada is significant and continues to grow. Family businesses represent the largest number of employers in the country and so play a vital role in the well-being of the economy.

As businesses pass from one generation to the next, the complexities with regards to intergenerational transfer can be daunting for the parties involved. As the face of family businesses change, given the transfer of one generation to a next, we see increased complexities and stress in relationships. These relationships are foundational to the continuation of the business.

Lawyer fees will cost you hundreds if not thousands of dollars. Why incur unnecessary debt or added financial stress if you don’t have to?
