Dispute Mediation is better than losing a key customer or supplier
Disputes are a sad reality of doing business these days. Complex contracts. Cultural differences. Conflicting objectives. There are so many pitfalls that business relationships can fall into and with the financial pressures caused by events like Covid-19 and Brexit then there is less tolerance and understanding. Litigation often seems to be the only way out. However often the only winners are the respective legal teams and the long-term damage to business can be far greater as you may lose key customers or suppliers.
But there is an alternative. Good mediation is not only a cheaper and faster option, but it can often restore customer/supplier relationships to the mutual benefit of everyone.
