Business Disputes – the extent of the problem

Research published by the Legal Services Board in April 2022 shows exactly how serious the problem is. In a survey of 10,228 small businesses in England and Wales, a huge 32% of them had a legal problem in the previous 12 months – and a huge 55% of respondents, when asked how serious the issues were,  said that those problems had a medium or high impact on the business in question.

And that impact is not just financial. Previous LSB research also estimated that over 1 million individuals in small businesses nationwide suffered ill health as a direct result of business disputes.

Your business dispute – your legal costs may be much less than you think

Depending on your circumstances, it’s quite likely that the best way to start off will be with a carefully crafted solicitor’s letter. We can set out the problem, the legal position, the solution you’re seeking and indicate what further action you’re prepared to take if a reasonable settlement can’t be reached.

These letters are surprisingly effective and quite often will resolve, or help to resolve the problem swiftly.

And rest assured that the experience of our business dispute lawyers means that we will make sure that the letter sets the right tone – particularly if it’s important for you to keep a reasonable relationship with the other party going forward.

And if that 1st letter doesn’t do the trick – we can handle any necessary follow-up, whether it’s negotiation mediation or court application.

Will we have to go to court?

Although it may be necessary, to be frank, having to rely on a fully contested hearing before a judge in court is the last resort. Except on the rare event where there are very urgent issues involved (requiring some form of injunction perhaps), fully contested litigation is slow, stressful and can be painfully expensive. And it’s rare that the outcome is guaranteed.

So issuing court proceedings should never be done without some serious consideration. Contacting our team will provide an opportunity for you to run the circumstances of your particular position past our expert lawyers who can give you an initial view on your best option – and in particular whether an application to court at such an early stage is best for you. In most, but not all, cases trying other options  such as commercial mediation or arbitration may be your best move on day one.

Your Business Dispute – the importance of commercial mediation and other dispute resolution

Sadly, as the Legal Services Board research mentioned above shows, most businesses become involved in some form of  legal dispute at one stage or another. And those have gone through it know how time consuming, stressful and expensive court proceedings can be.

That’s why here at Bonallack & Bishop, we recommend a practical and cost-effective strategy aimed at dispute resolution rather than conflict. And what’s more we try to do so at an early stage before significant legal costs begin to mount up and before the party’s respective positions get entrenched.

That doesn’t mean we won’t fight your corner – but it does mean we recognise the importance of settling our clients business disputes as efficiently and effectively as possible, with a strong emphasis on keeping your legal costs down, whilst safeguarding your legal position.

Rest assured that our business dispute team together has considerable experience in successfully settling commercial litigation using negotiation, commercial arbitration and mediation. But equally, where appropriate, we don’t hesitate in resorting to litigation to help you reach the right commercial outcome.
