When any business entity dissolves, whether a corporate dissolution, a partnership or a professional association, there is frequently a law suit between the former business owners over property rights. The dissolving parties can be doctors, businessmen, shareholders or family members. More often than not, the parties will continue to have relationships with each other in the future.
The business entity dissolution has characteristics similar to a family law case. Someone feels wronged personally and financially. Egos and self-esteem can be as important as the legal issues over money and property, just like a divorce case. Litigation can put all these matters in the public eye for all to see. Mediation can keep the issues private. In mediation the real interests of the parties can be determined and settlement options explored. The parties have control over the result. Mediation has a better chance of preserving relationships of the parties than does litigation.
