This shows a guy quite able to operate a harmonious build. At the same time he will run performance art when it is necessary. It is occasionally necessary but not as a first choice. This is how this type of business must be done and the process is common.
The reason he built a huge fortune is that he minimized conflict and maximized value. This can never be done pursuing lawsuits. There is no evidence of that although he always tries to settle from strength as he should. It is faster and you are in charge of fairness..
My sense is that he has few detractors in business and that usually means that all were satisfied, grudgingly or otherwise.
