Don’t let a business dispute drag down your company.
Business disputes are a significant threat to any organization. They can be costly, damaging to professional relationships, and detrimental to brand equity. If you’re facing a business dispute, retaining an experienced attorney will give you a significant advantage whether or not litigation becomes necessary. The best course of action to resolve your business dispute may depend on whether you’re dealing with an internal or external business dispute.
Internal Business Disputes
Internal business disputes can threaten the very core of a company. Furthermore, they may destroy business relationships years in the making. Some of the more common types of internal business disputes are:
Retirement and Buyout Disputes
Sale of Business Disputes
Family-owned Company Disputes
Oftentimes internal business disputes can be very challenging to resolve because the disputing parties are also friends and coworkers. In these cases, mediation becomes key. An experienced attorney can help you resolve your dispute amicably and in a manner that allows you to keep doing business together. This practice is oftentimes known as Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). ADR describes a multitude of processes, including mediation, neutral evaluation, arbitration, conciliation, and collaborative law. ADR has several advantages over commercial litigation. It is more affordable, private, and may allow you to resolve your dispute more quickly, given the case load of our court system. However, in order to be effective, ADR requires that both parties retain a lawyer specialized in its practice. If you’re interested in pursuing this option, a highly experienced attorney is a must.
