How do you resolve a business dispute?

Disputes arise from time to time in business relationships and can be difficult to resolve, especially if there isn’t an agreement which sets out a framework for doing so.

Ideally every business agreement, whether it be a shareholders agreement, a supply agreement, a distribution agreement, a service agreement, or any other type of agreement, should anticipate that issues may arise in the course of the relationship, and set out a framework for resolving this.  By doing so the parties have a better chance of resolving any issues expeditiously and cost effectively, and preserving their business relationship.
