It is often possible to avoid a dispute by having an agreement that is suitable for the situation at hand. Such an agreement regulates the parties’ respective rights and obligations on a number of important issues, which may prevent a dispute or make it possible for the parties to settle a dispute by themselves.
If a situation arises which could lead to a dispute, e.g. a delivery is late, or is not according to specification, it is important to contact your lawyer as soon as possible for assistance in handling the situation, in order to avoid a dispute or at least minimize the business risk. Often the lawyer is contacted first when a dispute has materialized, the company may even be in a lawsuit.
