Suggestions for how you can resolve business disputes

There is little else as unsettling as catching wind of a dispute in your organization. Often, you are immediately met with conflicting stories and are left to your own resources to sort through what you have heard and understand what is going on. In many cases, finding a solution that benefits both sides require compromise and time to articulate. At Wang Intellectual Property, we have helped many businesses in California to overcome organizational disputes. 

Chances are, the last place you want to end up is in court. In fact, if you allow the problem to become too prevalent, you could cause damage to your company’s reputation which could affect your sales performance. As soon as you are made aware of a disagreement, it is imperative that you address the issue right away. According to Chron, some of your options for reaching an agreement include the following:

  • Mediation: This resource provides the disagreeing parties with the option of meeting with a third-party to discuss their differences in a controlled environment. You and other organizational leaders may be present to help identify root problems and discuss viable solutions. 
  • Management agreements: Before disputes ever arise, you can make a proactive decision to articulate a detailed management agreement. This tool is an excellent way to clarify important aspects of business operation before they become a problem when people begin to interpret them on a personal level. 
  • Negotiation: As the dust settles and emotions have tapered a little, you can work with both parties to negotiate a deal. This will require flexibility and humility of both parties but can open the door to productive and successful communication. 

When you are aware of your options for settling conflict, you can make a more confident decision about which method will work best for you and your employees. For more information about settling business disputes, visit our web page.

What Our Clients Say

Starting a new business can be a bit scary. Aside from worries of failure, there’s also the hassle of making sure all legal paperwork are properly filed. I reached out to Mr. Wang (Tommy) because of his excellent reviews and reputation and I am so glad I did. He was thorough and meticulous in answering all of my concerns and took time to find out special laws and policies regarding the kind of business I am starting. I could focus on the daily practical side of starting my new office without worry because I felt Tommy was reliable and took my case seriously. My business is opened and it’s all been a smooth start because of Tommy’s help. I have plans to start another business venture in the next few years and I already know I’ll be coming back to Wang IP Law.

I came to Tommy for help reviewing a licensing agreement I had secured with a well-known manufacturer. Tommy made sure I understood all the details in the contract and he negotiated with the company to improve my side of the deal. I mentioned to Tommy at my first consultation that we were looking to expand throughout the US and were investing a lot of money to make a big entrance into the market. I did not think I would have my store open so soon but Tommy also has connections with the local area and realtors to help me secure the location for my first store in the Los Angeles area. Tommy works a lot with the local businesses and he understands how to transition from the Asian market to US market. Within 8 months my store was open for business and fully operating. I must recommend Tommy to any business owners looking for help with contracts and improving their side of the deal. Tommy has the knowledge and experience to make sure there is a smooth process to open for business here, and make sure that your company is set up for success.

I have been working on my Utility Patent for almost 4 years. I have hired and fired two very reputable IP firms because with all their expertise and reputation for being some of the top firms in IP Law, I felt a lack of connection and care in my product, time and financial investment. Then I found Tommy and his team. Tommy does not waste time. He and his team are professional and extremely thorough. After 4 years, I finally found a legal team that I felt spent the time to really understand the components of my utility patent. Tommy also very mindful of cost and how and where my money would be better spent. I really feel I am in great hands with Tommy and his team. They have been patient with my revisions. And most importantly, they made me feel that they fully understood the importance this patent is to me. It has been a great and comforting pleasure working with Tommy.
