The New York Times has featured Landmark Education Chairman Terry Giles for helping broker a reconciliation among the three surviving children of Martin Luther King, Jr., and helping restore order to the organizations which control King's legacy.
According to the article, the center of the dispute was King Inc., the company that controlled the intellectual property of Dr. Martin Luther King. Giles was appointed to take temporary control of King Inc., as well as the nonprofit organization which housed much of the King archives.
The family had agreed to a court-appointed custodian to mediate the dispute, and Giles, a highly regarded lawyer, was the consensus choice of the family because of his reputation for effectively resolving sensitive, high-profile family situations. The financial disputes appear to have been resolved and the Times reports that the siblings are issuing statements about their "shared vision" and "speaking with one voice".
The article also mentions that Giles uses strategies learned at Landmark Education in his work resolving family issues. He also credits his own challenging family upbringing for giving him compassion for what families deal with. The entire article can be read at the website of The New York Times. A summary of the article can also now be found on the Landmark Forum website.
