It is often the case that business owners do not know what to do or who to turn to if they are not getting paid because of a dispute, as a result they do nothing at all.
In all cases it is preferable to resolve the matter without ‘going to court’, as court cases can be costly and extremely time consuming and often leaves all parties, even the successful party, feeling dissatisfied.
We are able to help resolve disputes. Our intervention normally avoids the parties becoming entrenched and the relationship breaking down to a point that negotiation is impossible.
We explore, with our clients, what their objectives are in any dispute and identify the most cost effective way of resolving the dispute and in the shortest possible time.
An early evaluation of any dispute and the party’s position is paramount. However, we regularly find that the dispute is not as bad as first envisaged and with the right approach and together with a willingness to compromise, most disputes can normally be resolved quickly.
Negotiation, rather than one party winning or losing at court, benefits all parties, allowing them to move on from the dispute with their relationships, reputations and businesses intact.
If you have a commercial dispute that is stopping you from being paid, please speak to us.
