Benson family battle for Saints, Pelicans, a matter of trusts
John Goldman was quoted in The Times-Picayune regarding a family feud in New Orleans involving Tom Benson, the owner of the New Orleans Saints and New Orleans Pelicans, and succession plans that have led to several lawsuits. From his "business divorce" experience -- helping to resolve family disputes over businesses, real estate and wealth generally -- and his perspective from decades of handling sports matters, Goldman predicted that NFL and NBA league leaders were already urging the Benson family to resolve their legal disputes quickly and efficiently. "In family disputes, emotions get very high," John said. "It can really be an issue."
