Commercial disputes are common — and, if you deal with them early, they shouldn’t cause too many issues for your business. LegalVision’s range of articles about disputes and litigation explain what to expect if you find yourself in a commercial disagreement.

LegalVision’s team has three simple tips to help you avoid time-consuming and expensive disputes:

  1. Make sure your contracts are drafted in a way that contemplates common sources of dispute and reduces the risk of litigation. It’s good practice for your contracts to set out how the parties will deal with any disagreements (referred to as the “dispute resolution clauses” of a contract).
  2. If a dispute arises, look out for opportunities to find a practical resolution. Litigation takes a lot of time, energy and resources. Settling a dispute before heading to court is often a positive outcome.
  3. Work with a pragmatic disputes lawyer Your lawyer should help you identify opportunities and strategies for resolving your dispute, but also have the experience to provide strong representation if litigation becomes necessary.

A pragmatic disputes lawyer will focus on resolving your dispute in a commercial and cost-effective way, so you can get back to doing what you do best: running your business. For more guidance about disputes and litigation, browse our articles on this topic.
