However it can be difficult to resolve a dispute particularly when your business reputation is at stake. There are ways you can resolve the dispute you are facing though, whilst also protecting your interests at the same time. Whatever dispute you are facing though, an early resolution is in the best interests of all parties.
There are so many opportunities in business for disputes to arise, such as with your customers over an order or perhaps a breach of contract or maybe with individuals connected to your business such as a partner or shareholder.

There are a number of different ways of resolving a dispute. You will have already tried to find an amicable way to handle your dispute and to find a resolution so the likelihood is that when you walk through our door, things have escalated.
This means that you should consider options such as mediation, arbitration or even litigation. The first two of these options are pretty similar. They both involve an impartial, fully trained third party or parties who will listen to both side of the dispute and make a ruling on the outcome. The main differences between mediation and arbitration are that any decision made in arbitration is legally binding, but the same cannot be said in mediation.
In addition, both mediation and arbitration are all carried out behind closed doors, which has the added advantage of keeping the commercial dispute private between the parties involved.
If you do decide to go to court and litigate, the case is public and open to scrutiny by your competitors, customers and staff which may be damaging to your business.
