How can I resolve a commercial dispute?

A commercial dispute can be resolved in a number of ways. First, we encourage you to discuss and try to resolve the issue with the other party. If this is not possible or helpful and you do have to engage in business dispute lawyers, there are other options available.

  1. Agreement – Both parties come to a mutually acceptable agreement without the need for third-party involvement or legal intervention. This is often the quickest and most cost-effective resolution.
  2. Mediation – Both parties will appoint a third-party mediator. A mediator does not provide legal advice or make decisions – instead they assist the parties with some perspective to reach a decision.
  3. Arbitration – Both parties will appoint an arbitrator and provide them with documents to make a decision.
  4. Court – Going to court is the last resolution, and we try to avoid it to save you money, time and hassle. The court will make a decision as to who is right and who is wrong in a dispute.
