How business disputes arise

Simply because another party signed a contract stating their responsibilities in a business transaction does not necessarily mean the will hold up their end of the bargain. In some cases, an agreement may have never been formalized in a written contract but rather may have been the result of verbal conversations or simply a mutual understanding. The following are examples of actions that commonly lead to business disputes:

  • Breach of contracts
  • Misrepresentation
  • Fraud
  • Conversion
  • Disputes with employees
  • Disputes among shareholders
  • Dissolution disagreements

These are, of course, only a few examples as business disputes may arise under any number of circumstances, and you always want an attorney who can handle the unique circumstances of your dispute.

Dispute resolution options

Whether another party acts wrongfully or accuses you of acting wrongfully, you always want to resolve the dispute as quickly and efficiently as possible so you can return to business as usual. Several alternatives to litigation exist that can help you resolve your dispute without lengthy battles in court. Examples of alternative dispute resolutions (ADR) include negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and more. These methods take place outside of a courtroom and can help many business owners come to agreements without the need for litigation. An experienced St. Louis business dispute attorney can identify the most effective ADR methods for your particular case to save you time and money.

ADR is not always successful, however, and sometimes litigation is necessary to resolve disputes. You always want an attorney who has litigation experience and who will provide aggressive representation in the courtroom when necessary.
