In this podcast, we look at sibling rivalries in family businesses. Our host and head of the family office practice, Ivan Sacks, talks to Lou Mezzullo, an experienced advisor and speaker on family business succession planning and a frequent expert witness in cases involving family business disputes. Lou provides insight and thoughtful guidance on succeeding across generations within a family business by avoiding the types of stumbling blocks that often come to hinder that success, including a simple lack of communication or transparency of information, an imbalance of the wealth distribution, and failure to deal effectively with the rights of inactive business members to participate in the family business.
