Examples of Commercial Disputes
There are various business disputes that can occur. Whether it’s between suppliers and the business or involves your commercial property landlord, they can cause significant issues for your company. One of the most common types of commercial disputes includes contractual disagreements. If someone has breached their terms, such as failing to deliver, this is a legal issue that must be solved in an efficacious manner.
Shareholders, directors, and other individuals involved in the business can also reach an impasse when it comes to the overall running of the company. Whilst most matters can be solved in-house, more serious shareholder disputes will need legal intervention. Professional insolvency and commercial negligence can cause businesses to suffer financially and, therefore, matters should be dealt with by assisting the help of a commercial litigation solicitor.
Other common business disputes include, but are not limited to:
· Outsourcing and construction disputes
· Partnership disagreements
· Reputation management, such as defamation cases, and NDA breaches
