Ellin & Tucker business consulting expert Chris Oven tackled this important topic for the Baltimore Business Journal, outlining the most important factors to consider when starting a new business relationship. Chris offers advice on what an enduring partner looks like, why it’s critical to seek out new partnerships before they’re needed, and how to avoid the common pitfalls that can derail what could be a lasting relationship.
