Book your free place today! Please join us as Lupton Fawcett and Family Business United explore proactive steps to reduce conflict in a family business.

Running a family business can be extremely rewarding. However, family businesses are complex and due to the fine balance between commercial decisions and family needs, the potential for conflict can be high.

Prevention and communication are key when it comes to managing conflict in family businesses, but what do you need to be looking for and how can you proactively keep your family business on track?

Award-winning family business legal advisors Lupton Fawcett have paired up with Family Business United to explore the causes of conflict and steps to take now to deter conflict further down the line.

This seminar will cover…

  • the impact of misaligned expectations;
  • the unintended consequences of proactivity;
  • the role of collaborative advice;
  • the role of effective communication; and
  • the legal mechanisms that can support your family business.
