If you’re a business owner and you’re experiencing some type of dispute related to your company, then you’re likely trying to decide how to resolve the issues as quickly as possible. You may be better off opting to obtain the services of a Tampa business litigation attorney.

Common Business Disputes

Although the sky is the limit when it comes to types of business disputes, here is a list of the most common business disputes: 

  • Non-compete clause issues with employees
  • Business disputes with other businesses
  • Disputes with business partners
  • Issues involving breach of contract

Mediation and Conflict Resolution

Your Tampa business lawyers may decide that mediation and conflict resolution is the best way to help you resolve your business dispute. What is mediation and conflict resolution? Mediation is a structured process in which all parties involved in the dispute will meet in a room where your attorney acts as a mediator in order to help resolve the conflict.

What if Mediation Fails?

Things can sometimes become kind of heated during such meetings, which is why the attorney will likely have certain rules about who speaks first and that another person should not speak until it’s their turn, just like in court. If mediation is unable to effectively resolve the dispute, your attorney surely has a plan B and even a plan C available.
