Business Disputes

It is certainly hopeful to assume that all of the documents you create at the onset of founding your business—coupled with good relationships between you and your employees, contractors, and partners —will help to minimize the chances of disputes. However, it is more realistic to assume that at some point in the process of managing or owning your business, you will encounter a business dispute. This is extremely common across all industries in the United States, and there are several common causes of business disputes, including breaches of contract, partnership disputes, and employee lawsuits, to name a few.

Minimize Risks When Disputes Arise

Although you cannot always control the extent to which you might be exposed to a lawsuit, there are steps you can take to minimize the implications of what will happen when a dispute arises.

Breaches of Contract

In an ideal world, anyone part of a contract would clearly understand his or her role and work hard to uphold his or her end of the bargain. Unfortunately, this does not always happen, and this is referred to as a "breach of contract." Once a contract has been breached, the party who has been wronged may pursue legal action in order to rectify the problem, including fighting for losses, canceling the contract, or forcing the other party to comply. 

Partnership Disputes

There might come a time when lack of planning or disagreement among partners halts progress in the business. When this issue cannot be resolved on your own, a lawyer can be contacted in order to move the process along and work toward a resolution. It might be necessary to end the business relationship or close the business if you cannot resolve your dispute, so a lawyer’s insight can be very valuable.

Unfair Business Practices

Allegations against a business regarding unfair practices can damage your reputation and profits. That’s why getting help as soon as possible is so important. Some of the most common issues in these cases include:
