The managing partner and one of the founding partners of a highly successful boutique law firm were having an extremely difficult time working together. They no longer trusted each other, were constantly angry, and had virtually ceased speaking. This not only was affecting the two of them, but was negatively affecting the morale and management of the firm. Finally, it got so tense between the two that one of them announced he was leaving the firm. They had not intended to let their relationship degenerate so significantly, and other attorneys were worried that the partner’s departure would leave a gap in the firm’s legal expertise and could affect its ultimate stability. The firm hired me to help the two partners resolve their differences and work together in the future.
