What To Do If You Have a Business Dispute
Navigating Business Disputes: When and How to Seek Legal Advice
It is not uncommon for a small business to have a disagreement with a vendor or another business. Most of the time these disputes are resolved as business matter, without the need for lawyers to get involved.
Sometimes, however, you reach an impasse. Common examples we have seen are contract disputes with suppliers or vendors, disagreements between business partners, and disputes over claimed unfair business practices by a competitor.
Even if you think you can resolve the dispute on your own, it is still a good idea to get legal advice early on. When thinking about your negotiating position, it is important to know what the "worst case" legal risks are for you, and also what your affirmative legal rights are. This will also put you in a better position if you cannot resolve the issue and find yourself either responding to a civil lawsuit or needing to go to court yourself.
