Business disputes are, unfortunately, an inevitable part of the business world. Whether you have a dispute with a competitor, a customer, an employee, a former employee, a vendor, or anything else, you don’t want a business dispute that should be easily solved to turn into a frustrating and expensive mess. When business disputes aren’t handled properly, business owners are often left holding the pieces. In today’s two-part blog, we’re going to take a look at some of the most common business disputes and some important things to remember about this frustrating, yet inevitable event in your business ventures.

Disputes with Competitors

Disputes between business competitors is a story that isn’t unfamiliar to us. Nike picked up Michael Jordan in an effort to outsell Reebok, Central Pacific Railroad rushed to lay down an extra 10 miles of track in order to get the government funding that otherwise would have gone to Union Pacific, and Coke and Pepsi have been at each other’s throats for generations. As has been the case with many of these disputes between competitors, a third party competitor often finds a way to outshine both of the fighting parties while their focus was on destroying each other.

Though your business disputes may not be as large scale as a dispute between GM and Ford, you still need to be able to find a resolution. No matter the cause of your competitor dispute, Valente Law is here to help you come to a resolution that you can get behind, and hopefully, one that benefits you most. Reach out to us for help with your business competitor disputes!

Disputes with Customers

Customer disputes can be anything from billing disputes to product dissatisfaction to injury claims to even death. In this day and age, with the easy spreading of reviews and testimonials from customers, it’s more important than ever to resolve customer disputes with as much class and poise as possible. If you have a dispute with a customer and you know that it’s time to bring on legal aid, contact Valente Law today. We’d love to help you navigate your customer disputes.

Disputes with Former Employees

Some of the most common business disputes with former employees involve the nature of the employee’s termination or the choice of the employee to giving trade secrets to the business’ competition. When an employee is let go from a company, there are often good, if not great reasons to have made the decision to terminate. However, when an employee feels that there was a legitimate grievance, and they pursue legal action, this dispute can get pretty messy.
Because allegations from former employees can be extremely detrimental to a company if the complaints aren’t handled properly, we suggest that you call Valente Law at the first sign of a dispute with a former employee.

Disputes with Current Employees

When it comes to employees who are still working for the company, there are almost countless opportunities for someone to become disgruntled and bring about a dispute that could turn into a frustrating and expensive mess. Whether an employee brings about a conflict when it comes to pay, a sexual harassment claim, sexism, or other claims of unethical treatment, it’s important to protect yourself with a brilliant legal mind who specializes in business disputes of all kinds. Call Valente Law today for all of your employee disputes.
