Family M & A Issues




or, Drugs In The Workplace



Bob almost gave his entire business and estate to a cocaine addict. 


Blood is thicker than water, and this can make us thick in our thinking.  The good news is that dad changed his mind and did not leave his business to his son, mostly because the key employees had the chance to express their views. 


Dad was forced to deal with the grim reality that his son had stolen large sums of money from him when dad let the son operate the company during his hospitalization.  Dad also discovered that the smart and loyal long time employees actually hated the drug using son and would quit if he were the CEO/president.  Dad put the company up for sale and died a short time after it sold. 


The company was sold to a high bidder, and the owners wife was set for life after the sale. The son was allowed a significant sum to start his own business.  It all worked out in the end.


Close call.
