frequently occur, often causing great concern for the parties
involved whether from a financial, emotional or "principles at
stake" viewpoint. All too often, individuals and businesses

quickly resolved, can cause delay, generate cost and result in
an unwelcome step into the unknown.

debts, or internally, between directors and business partners.
