I need some advice regarding my family restaurant business The restaurant is currently being run by 2 sisters. My mother has 51 shares and the 2 sisters have the remaining shares but sister 1 has one more (I think) than sister 2 Sister 1 is jack of of all trades and works non stop while sister 2 just works her shift and that's all. Sister 1 lives on site, is on call all the time and if she left the place would close in a week. She does even more since my father passed away 5 years ago. Sister 2 could stay home and make no difference. Sister 2 has had a hate on for sister 1 for years for no apparent reason and they have been avoiding each other for years. Sister 1 tries to talk as a friend but sister 1 has 'F*** you' attitude. Recently she has gotten much worse -my wife (working part time waitress) quit because she can't work with her. My question is... Should the family intervene? Can we? The remaining 3 family members do not have shares but I am thinking that since my mother is not involved in running the business and we don't want to stress her, I was wondering if it would be a smart move for her to give up her shares to the remaining 3 family members. My mother (mid 80's) doesn't make any decisions on the business and would accept advise from us if it makes sense. It wouldn't make any difference to her financially since she gets no income from the business anyway. Dad left her majority shares when he died and she plans to give them to us when she dies. My thinking is that we could meet as a family and decide what is best but I don't know legally who would have power to make decisions.
