Are you stuck in a dispute you can’t see a way out of?

If you’re locked in a dispute with an office equipment supplier, it can feel like there will never be a satisfactory outcome. The rights and wrongs of the situation can get lost in a battle of wills. Everybody’s got a vested interest and no-one wants to give ground, for fear of losing face. So what happens? You end up in a very expensive legal battle or settling for an outcome you don’t believe is equitable just to put the whole episode behind you. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Types of services we offer

For a dispute involving an office supply contract in the UK, there are several dispute resolution methods we can deploy, depending on the specifics of your case and the preferences of both parties involved. They include:

  • Early Neutral Evaluation: This could be used if you want an expert opinion on the merits of your case, which can then guide your negotiations or decisions about further dispute resolution processes.
  • Negotiation: You may choose to negotiate directly with each other to reach a settlement. This approach is often preferred for its simplicity and the control it gives the parties over the outcome. We can also support with negotiation on your behalf.
  • Mediation: This is often the first more formal step for resolving contract disputes. It allows both parties to discuss their issues with the help of a neutral mediator, aiming to reach a mutually agreeable solution. It’s less formal and can preserve business relationships, which is crucial in ongoing commercial arrangements.
  • Arbitration: If the contract includes an arbitration clause, or if both parties agree to it, arbitration can be a viable option. It’s more formal than mediation but typically quicker and less expensive than court litigation. The arbitrator’s decision is usually binding and enforceable.

The choice among these methods depends on factors like the nature of the dispute, the relationship between the parties, the complexity of the contract, the desired speed of resolution, and whether the parties prefer a binding decision. In many cases, the contract itself may specify a preferred method of dispute resolution. We can offer guidance on the appropriate next steps to take.
