How Do Business Disputes Arise in Oregon?

Find the right Business Disputes attorney in Corvallis, OR

Business disputes in Oregon often happen in several different areas. Frequently businesses disagree on the exact terms of prior contracts or arrangements. Also, billing issues and property matters can give rise to disagreements in the business setting.

What to Do in a Business Dispute?

If you are involved in a business dispute in Corvallis, Oregon you should first review any relevant documents, including past and current contracts. These documents may contain clauses that dictate how and where you should handle a dispute. If there are no relevant documents, or the contracts do not have resolution clauses, then the dispute may need to be taken to court. In trying to discover the best resolution for two parties who have not agreed beforehand on a resolution, Oregon courts will use particular legal principles designed for the situation. The fields of contract law and dispute resolution are defined by local state law. Corvallis attorneys are accustomed to handling disputes under Oregon law, and can offer personalized advice for all types of business disputes. An attorney's knowledge of the law may also lead to a more streamlined discussion with the other business about how to resolve the dispute. Negotiations may even enable you to resolve the dispute without going to court.

Alternative Dispute Resolution

Sometimes contracts themselves require that disputes under them be resolved outside of court. Methods of conflict resolution of this type are called Alternative Dispute Resolution or ADR. ADR includes Mediation, Arbitration and sometimes a combination of the two. ADR is designed to reach the same conclusion as a court, but without the cost and inconvenience of actually appearing before a judge. Nevertheless, each type of ADR carries its own set of protocol, often involving a neutral third party that resolves the conflict according to the law. An attorney specialized in Alternative Dispute Resolution can help you with your business dispute in Corvallis if it is to be resolved out of court.
