Common Types of Business Disputes

A business dispute can range from partners disagreeing on relatively minor matters to something very serious, like a breach of contract. No matter what the disagreement entails, it’s important to end the matter quickly and, if possible, outside of a courtroom.

The most common types of business disputes include:

  • Partner Disagreements: Partnerships can be great for the business. But when each partner has a different outlook on how the business should be run or the direction it should be heading, it brings conflict. Misunderstandings and disagreements can quickly turn into legal troubles, especially if one of the partners breaches their fiduciary duty to the business or to the other partners.
  • Business to Business Issues: When one business believes another’s actions have an adverse effect on it, litigation may be the only option to solve the problem. Such actions can include minor infractions, unfair and deceptive practices in the marketplace, and even a simple misunderstanding.
  • Breach of Contract: When one party fails to fulfill its duties under the terms of a contract, such as failing to complete a job or to deliver goods, this is considered a breach of contract. If this occurs, the injured party will have a chance to seek monetary damages from the other party.

Alternative Dispute Resolution for Businesses

There are many ways to resolve or even prevent a business dispute from occurring, many of which can occur outside the courtroom. One of the most popular alternatives is alternative dispute resolution (ADR). ADR is a process that allows the disputing parties to meet with a neutral third party and reach an agreement without the need for litigation. It can reduce time and money for all parties involved.

The two most common types of ADR are mediation and arbitration. Mediation is when a third party helps the parties reach a mutual agreement. The mediator’s role is to assist in the agreement process; he/she has no power over deciding the outcome of the dispute. Mediation is confidential, and the agreement is usually non-binding, meaning that litigation could be pursued following the process.

The second type of ADR is arbitration. Similar to mediation, it involves a neutral third party to help solve the agreement. However, in arbitration, the third party acts like a judge who will listen to the arguments from both sides then make a decision on the outcome. It’s a less formal situation than a lawsuit and the result can either be binding or non-binding.

In any case involving ADR, the common denominator in successfully reaching a resolution is a neutral party to assist with the outcome of the dispute. You need someone who has been certified by a court of law, as well as someone who is experienced in these types of claims.

    “I highly recommend Attorney Molly & the firm to anyone seeking reliable & compassionate assistance during challenging times.”

    I have a friend who sought help from Fellerman & Ciarimboli and said they were very nice and helpful. So when I needed assistance, they were the first ones I thought of, and gave them a call. I was connected to Attorney Molly Clark, who made a significant impact. Her comforting personality created a welcoming environment during our interactions, turning what could have been a somber experience into one filled with positivity. Our upbeat conversations, in contrast to the challenging situation, improved my well-being.

    What truly won me over was Molly's commitment to keeping me informed about the progress of my situation. Whenever I called her with questions, she promptly provided answers, ensuring I had the information I needed when I needed it. Working with Fellerman & Ciarimboli was a positive experience given the circumstances I was facing. I highly recommend Attorney Molly and the firm to anyone seeking reliable and compassionate assistance during challenging times.
