The most memorable case is one where there’s probably the most drama and I had a case where in a family dispute one of several siblings was taking money from the company and some of the other owners wanted to forgive him and find some way to make the business work, and some others were very against that and thought that there needed to be some significant legal and criminal repercussions. We had significant and long board meetings where we discussed what was happening and it was contentious and emotional and draining. My role in it was to try to cut through a lot of the emotion and help them get to a good business resolution, because that’s where they needed to ultimately go. We had to go into litigation, but we did get a settlement that allowed the family to go forward.
