Why Work with Chris

Honest, Expert Partnership Mediation

I help business partners work our their differences and grow their businesses using my relaxed, cost-effective method.

We Can Work It Out

Most business partnership problems can be resolved. It takes creative thinking to find solutions that satisfy everyone’s wishes. That’s my specialty.

Good Success Rate

Sometimes people don’t want to work things out. They might be afraid of being cast aside. Maybe they just can’t give up control. If there is zero willingness to find compromises, the process will fail. But when people care about each other and are willing to consider possibilities, things can work out in the toughest situations.

You Have Rights

What if your partner refuses to talk with you? You have rights and your partner has legal obligations. It’s always best to work things out but if that’s not possible, you need someone who can help you with your rights as a partner.

Chris’ Philosophy


Respect Comes First

All talks are handled respectfully. No matter how frustrated people are with each other, all our work will be conducted with respect. Respect builds trust. Trust opens the door to agreements.


The Help Must Be Affordable

I pay attention to cost throughout the process. It would be silly to waste money if there is no hope for success.


Protect the Business

My client is your business. While I work hard to protect everyone’s interests, it’s the business I want to preserve. It started as your dream. Let’s work together to work out differences and grow the company. And if it’s time to quit, we can work out an organized exit or shutdown.


After 15 years of struggling to be treated like a full partner, Dad is finally letting me make decisions. We meet once a week as you taught us. I’m learning things and Dad is open to trying social media for marketing. Thank you.

We are doing so much better since you spent a week with us. There was a lot of history and we fell into some old patterns as you pointed out. Now we talk as partners at work and sisters when we get together outside of work. I’m so glad we found you.

I wanted to let you know that we decided to keep working together. It got pretty tense but we are doing the things you taught us and it’s better now. Kevin is open to a buyout and we may go there next year but for now things are pretty good. Thanks for the help. If you hadn’t stepped in, the business would be closed.
