Family Business

The current climate is particularly challenging for family businesses and partnerships. Expectations, needs, interests and financial pressures create a rich and particular humus for this special business arena. Amanda's personal experience of building and managing family business is matched by a real understanding of the psychological dynamics that are a feature of families and partnerships.

Dispute Resolution

Amanda has a wide range of skills and approaches to assist families and partners resolve disputes threaten to undermine relationships and the development of the business.

Strategic Planning

Change is absolutely normal and yet the predominant approach is to fight to control it, rather than build resilient and adaptive strategies to take the opportunities that change brings. That process requires trust, focus and creativity. These qualities are essential for making profitable changes. Manage the process of developing a strategy to ensure the future security of the partners or beneficiaries of the business and the outcome will be the right one because it will be an outcome that takes account of the subtle dynamics and needs of the people involved. No one understands this quite like someone who has been part of a family enterprise.

Succession Planning

Assumptions about the future leadership of the business can foster disillusionment and disputes. A mediated process brings clarity and direction to this most difficult aspect of family business.

In Practice

Partnership and family business disputes have been recent focal points for Bucklow, although she is also experienced in all manner of commercial and employment matters. "She has undertaken an extraordinary range of mediations and evidently has the skills to match."
