Resolving Disputes

Resolve your dispute as quickly and painlessly as possible

Resolving Disputes

If you’re like most entrepreneurs, a business dispute is the last thing you want on your plate. Large or small, a dispute drains time, money, and mental energy. In some cases, disputes are nearly paralyzing. Significantly interfering with the focus necessary to operate a business.

For better or worse, dealing with business disputes is part of running a business– just like taxes and other unpleasant obligations. And just like resolving other unpleasant obligations, there are steps you can take to resolve and lessen the toll of a business dispute. Allowing you to move forward and get back to work.

Common Business Disputes

Business disputes vary, but the majority fall into these categories.

  • Partnership Disputes
  • Breach of Contract Disputes
  • Employment Disputes
  • Customer Disputes
  • Contractor Disputes
  • Business to Business Disputes

Resolving Disputes

Dispute resolution can be achieved through a range of non-adversarial to adversarial methods. Methods include:

  • Informal Discussions
  • Principled Negotiations
  • Creative Problem Solving
  • Mediation
  • Arbitration
  • Cease and Desist Letters
  • Litigation

The best option will depend on the nuances of the dispute and the goals of the parties. However, resolving disputes outside the courtroom is the best option for the majority of businesses. Litigation is costly, unpredictable, lengthy, and stressful. Whereas negotiation or mediation often leads to a more satisfying and quicker resolution. Allowing for everyone to put the matter to rest and get back to business.
