What to Do in a Business Dispute?

In a business dispute in Mequon, Wisconsin, the parties should first go over any relevant documents, especially contracts. There might be terms in these documents that decide how to handle the dispute. If the contracts do not have resolution clauses, or neither business has any recorded documents relevant to the dispute, then the matter might need to be taken to court. In trying to discover the best resolution for two parties who have not agreed beforehand on a resolution, Wisconsin courts will use specific legal principles designed for the situation. The fields of contract law and dispute resolution are defined by local state law. Mequon lawyers are accustomed to handling disputes under Wisconsin 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 might 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 form are called Alternative Dispute Resolution or ADR. ADR includes Mediation, Arbitration and sometimes a combination of the two. ADR focuses on reaching the same resolution that a court would have, without the parties actually going to court. Methods of ADR often involve their own protocols, occasionally bringing in a third party to find a solution based on local law. If your business dispute is to be resolved by ADR, an attorney experienced with these methods in Mequon can counsel you throughout the process and develop the case you will present.
