For one client with a business worth several million dollars, an art gallery partnership dissolved un-amicably, resulting in bad press put out by the other director who was looking for revenge and to elicit pain and suffering. Unfortunately, this is not uncommon. When conducting a Google search, three negative links showed up, including one right at the top, by well respected industry sites. This was very damaging since it’s the first thing potential collectors see, and the more people click on it, the more likely it will remain prominent.
As a result, his income slid to nearly zero because he couldn’t move forward with his career–not in the art world nor in anything else.
After the repair treatment, however, he was able to find a new position, this time with a major auction house at a high salary.
