Stages of a dispute
There are generally three main stages of a dispute and we can assist you with all of them.
Early intervention is the best way to prevent a dispute from become a wrecking ball and causing major disruption to your business and life. Where disputes arise it is essential that you are able to manage the risk to ensure that your business can continue to function and do what it does best. Effective dispute and risk management cannot be underestimated, especially for businesses. A robust dispute and risk management strategy is essential so any disputes that occur can be dealt with promptly, efficiently and cost-effectively to minimise any negative impacts. It’s also critical that your business has effective commercial documentation that properly records the terms of any dealings and clearly outlines how, when and with whom you need to communicate in the event of a dispute.
- During the dispute
It seems obvious but here we need to establish that a dispute is actually happening. Although it sounds easy it is often very difficult and may not always be obvious. Fortunately, we have the skills in a range of effective dispute resolution procedures and methods to identify the dispute and take steps to resolve it. Early intervention at this point is really important as it can potentially save you tens of thousands of dollars in future legal costs.
Where litigation or court proceedings become necessary we can act for you to protect and defend your rights and to efficiently and effectively run any litigation or court proceedings to a resolution.
- Post dispute
The dispute has been resolved but that’s not the end yet. We will continue to assist you to ensure that you are able to properly and effectively implement any resolution (whether by agreement or Court Judgment) and to enforce and protect your rights and any Judgment obtained.
We can also assist you to strengthen your business and personal structures to guard you against future disputes and their impacts and to effectively manage those risks. Because, let’s face it, life’s too short for multiple disputes.
