Phil Chapman brings to the mediation of business disputes experience from a long career providing counselingNew Jerseyowners of small to medium-sized businesses, including family-owned businesses, helping them to craft relationships with others and counseling them with respect to business disputes, including disputes with business partners.
So much of effective counseling or mediating with respect to business disputes requires a broad and deep appreciation of business context, the problematics of litigation and mature judgment. As a “primary care” business lawyer, Phil has developed the ability quickly to ask the questions that go to the heart of the matter and the emotions that drive the parties involved.
Phil’s understanding of business context and how businesses operate enables him, as a mediator, to suggest forms of settlement that involve more than the payment of monies, such as a re-working of the relationship of the parties
