Michelle Morris, a partner at Kelman & Beaton, Partners at Law (K&B), was upset after a conversation she had just had with her two partners, Jack Beaton and Josh Kelman. Over the past few months, Morris and Kelman had become frustrated with Beaton’s performance. Beaton appeared to have been dedicating increasing amounts of his time to a second business and less to the progress of the firm. Beaton had also taken a rigid stance against the firm’s strategic direction. To make matters even more complicated, Morris and Kelman both had personal relationships with Beaton — Kelman and Beaton had been close friends since childhood, and Morris was Beaton’s cousin. Morris wondered how she should handle this difficult situation.
