Business Disputes

We have experience at settling all types of business disputes, including:

Partnership disputes: Emotional ties felt by business owners often complicate strategic decisions and partnership relationships. So, whether you can’t agree upon which direction to take the business, who should take on what roles, or even how to amicably separate from one another, let us help you tackle your most difficult issues in a way that restores and protects your partnership relationships.

Contract disputes: Despite our best efforts, contacts are often ambiguous, leading each party to a different interpretation. Rather than jeopardizing important relationships, leaving value on the table, or expending your resources on litigation, let us help bridge those gaps and align the parties. This way, you can capitalize on the opportunities you sensed when you first entered into the agreement.

Employee disputes: Is there tension within your team or with colleagues? Are you faced with disputing employees who are undermining your business? Or, perhaps, you find yourself opposite a disgruntled worker who has an issue with you or your organization? We can help resolve all types of employee disputes, so you can enjoy a more amicable work environment.

The Practitioner Advantage


Each member of the Consensus team has more than fifteen years of field experience, working on behalf of clients as their negotiators and mediators. As practitioners, we routinely test and apply cutting edge strategies and theories as part of our various client situations, ranging from hostage situations to billion-dollar business transactions to political standoffs.

Accordingly, we are highly informed about the strengths inherent to different approaches and frameworks, and how various theoretical concepts would or would not apply to your contexts. Our practitioner experience translates into more concrete advice based on firsthand experience, a true understanding of how theories play out in the real world (and when popular ideas would fall short), and an ability to relate to professionals at all levels of seniority – including members of your C-suite.
