Disputes between businesses are inevitable, regardless of your sector or type of business.
It may seem that the courts are the only option to resolve to your dispute effectively. And litigation can have a significant impact, not just on your company’s or even your own finances, but also potentially on your own reputation or your relationship with other businesses. Indeed, it may be that taking your dispute to the Scottish courts isn’t the best solution; there may be other routes open to you.
