Mr. Shapiro works in high stakes family business disputes. This work includes:

  • Family Business Succession Planning
  • Selling the Family Business
  • Divorce and the Family Business
  • Closely Held Businesses and Partnership Dispute Resolution

 
Family enterprises can create a high conflict, resulting in difficult business and personal issues. These disputes often have increased emotional tensions and families could be on the brink of a meltdown situation. In family run enterprises, especially those where the second generation has taken control, there may be ongoing resentments and inequalities of contribution that result in family business conflict. In addition, balancing the transfer of wealth between the active participants and the family members who are stakeholders but not working in the business can cause great conflict and resentment.
