the business litigation can fall into a
00:06
couple of different categories one is
00:08
relationships with shareholders or
00:10
partners one is employee you know
00:12
employer employee relationships and then
00:15
there are the other types of business
00:18
litigations more contract disputes
00:20
vendor disputes or supplier disputes
00:24
franchisor or whatever the case may be
00:27
by far the most difficult dispute to
00:30
resolve are the relationship disputes
00:32
partners have oftentimes known each
00:35
other for many years prior to becoming
00:37
partners and then some have worked
00:40
together for many years and at some
00:42
point in time the relative contributions
00:45
of the two partners have do not not then
00:49
equal in the eyes of each other and so
00:53
invariably when those disputes arise
00:56
you’re not just dealing with the matter
00:58
that’s right in front or the or the
01:00
disputed matter that’s right in front of
01:01
them it really goes back years and years
01:03
in terms of what their relative
01:05
contributions were and that’s what makes
01:07
it so difficult the same thing in
01:09
employment disputes and employment
01:10
dispute sometimes employees have worked
01:13
at a company for a very long period of
01:15
time so the company has a view that
01:17
they’ve given this employee a great
01:19
opportunity and have allowed them to
01:21
earn a lot of money etc the employee and
01:24
the other hand believes that they’ve
01:26
made great contributions that have added
01:28
to the success of the employer and
01:30
there’s just a you know mismatch of an
01:33
appreciation of one side to the other
01:35
those are much more difficult to resolve
01:37
than just a contract dispute in which
01:40
the two parties really don’t know each
01:41
other very well and it’s really limited
01:44
just to the exact dispute that’s right
01:45
in front of them
