Sale of Goods and Services
Whether business to business, or involving individual clients, litigation arising out of contracts for the provision of goods and services, both domestic and international, make up the largest sector in which dispute resolution services such as mediation, arbitration and facilitation are regularly used. Supply contracts can suffer from problems relating to breaches in performance, delays in delivery, disputes over price and quality, and debt recovery. Product liability, outsourcing and franchising are other common areas of dispute between parties. Clients and their advisers in this sector are, therefore, very familiar with the options available to them to assist in finding cost-effective, quick alternatives to litigation.
CEDR's specialists in this sector bring with them legal, professional and business expertise from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines, allowing them to offer clients the benefit of their experience to assist in the quick resolution of disputes or the negotiation of new deals.
Our highly experienced mediators and neutrals can also assist with consultancy assignments to develop organisational capability and capacity for resolving conflict including dispute systems design, introducing mediation, developing formal policies and procedures, establishing informal communication protocols and coaching managers and teams through change.
