Commercial Disputes are a fact of life. They can be damaging to a business both in terms of time, money and reputation. Disputes need to be understood and carefully managed to optimise the chances of a successful recovery or settlement that minimises the disruption, inconvenience and stress inherent when a working relationship fails and litigation or some other form of dispute resolution results. The Key to successful conflict management and resolution is to have in place an agreed strategy based on experience and industry knowledge.
