Key Facts about Business Dispute Resolution

Business disputes are undoubtedly stressful as they can create hostility, are a drain on your resources and can pose a risk to your business if they go wrong or are not dealt with appropriately.

If you have experienced any of the following, you will understand how much hassle business disputes can cause:

Employee issues, such as gross misconduct or capability
• Late payments or non-payments from customers
• Suppliers who let you down
• Business Contracts that go wrong
• Shareholder disputes
• People stealing your secrets or ignoring your rights

When dealing with disputes, you need to consider your best options for business dispute resolution and may choose to seek business dispute legal advice from one of our expert resolution lawyers or dispute solicitors.


How to Resolve Business Disputes with LawBite

Whether you or your company are bringing or defending any legal claim notified under the relevant Pre Action Protocol or if issued in the civil Courts (‘Litigation’), LawBite’s business dispute solicitors can provide you with expert guidance and the reassurance that you are receiving the best business dispute legal advice.

We can specialise in both  business dispute resolution and private dispute resolution advising on the relevant legal issues through to compliance with the applicable Pre-Action Protocol and representing you in court litigation. Your designated dispute resolution solicitor will review prospects and advise on strategies to resolve the dispute at a reasonable cost, whether that be through business mediation or alternative dispute resolution methods.

At LawBite, we ensure that our business dispute solicitors comply with the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) Standards and Regulations regarding requirements to notify clients of the likely cost of proceedings and funding options including Third Party Litigation funding. Find out more about LawBite’s experienced solicitors and lawyers.

Alternative Dispute Resolution Methods


Alternative Dispute Resolution Methods (‘ADR’) don’t involve the civil Courts and are intended to be cheaper, faster and less formal. Our business dispute solicitors will always consider this option as an alternative to costly court litigation as the parties are free to tailor the process to suit their needs and reach settlement on a confidential basis whilst maintaining positive business relationships. Find out more by reading our blog on using alternative dispute resolution methods to handle civil disputes, from what is involved to the advantages of Alternative Dispute Resolution.

Business Mediation Process


Business dispute mediation is a process whereby a neutral mediator is appointed by the parties’ business dispute solicitor to assist them to facilitate a settlement agreement. Business mediation is entirely confidential and can resolve the dispute before either party turns to litigation. Your assigned dispute resolution solicitor will identify and agree a suitable mediator and guide you through the process.

You can find out more about why business mediation is a great method of business dispute resolution in our blog, from what mediation involves to what happens if the mediator cannot resolve the dispute.

Other Dispute Resolution Options


Other alternative dispute resolution methods also exist, such as Early neutral evaluation (ENE) and Expert determination. With ENE, the dispute resolution solicitors appoint an independent person to provide a non-binding opinion on the merits (ENE), and, in Expert Determination, a qualified professional is appointed to determine an issue, usually of a technical nature.  This is a particularly useful method of business dispute resolution as an expert opinion may help break the deadlock.
