You run a business that works internationally. You have two teams, one in the United States and one in Europe. You work with many third parties and partners in both countries, and it’s difficult to keep up with the differences in law.
That’s why it’s a good idea to talk to your attorney if you’re struggling with litigation because of a business dispute. The fact that you may need to work with both U.S. and external laws can make it harder to resolve business disputes that go to court, but the good news is that you can generally resolve disputes before that is a concern.
Having a major disagreement happen between people in two countries makes it difficult to get your work done. Whether you’re fighting over the pricing of items you’re bringing into another country or over the quality of the products you received, it’s time to talk with someone about resolving this issue.
When you reach out to your attorney, talk to them about the international dispute. They’ll be able to identify the type of international dispute you’re dealing with and will research the applicable laws. Since your company is based in the United States, U.S. law may apply, but there may also be international laws to consider.
Your attorney will look into options like arbitration or mediation, if they are allowed in the other country as they are in the U.S. Their goal will be to help you resolve this dispute, so you can move forward with your business and continue forward with or without the other party’s involvement.
