Interactions between different parties are generally a major part of business. A company often will have interactions with many different parties during the course of business operations, such as suppliers, other businesses within its industry and clients. Also, many interactions can occur within a company as a part of normal business operations, such as interactions between company officials and company employees, interactions between partners in a company and interactions between company shareholders and company officials.
Businesses generally hope that all of these interactions will go smoothly and without a hitch. Unfortunately though, disputes sometimes arise during the course of such interactions. Some examples of disputes that sometimes arise during the course of business interactions include:
- Disagreements between a business and a client or another business over a contract.
- Disagreements between partners over the workings of the company.
- Disagreements between shareholders and company officers over the direction a company is going.
- Disputes between a company and its employees over employment terms or workplace conditions.
Whatever the specific nature of the dispute, disputes that arise in relation to business interactions can have the potential to have major effects on things such as a business' finances, reputation, business relationships and future.
Thus, when a dispute arises in relation to a business interaction, it is important for a company to understand what its options are.
