Business Disputes

Bridge Mediation can assist you, your clients, your suppliers and your employees with an opportunity to work together with the assistance of a mediator/facilitator/neutral third party in order to find a resolution to your business problems created by conflict.

Running a business involves interacting with multiple individuals and organisations who make up your supply chain. Problems will occur from time to time which may lead to ongoing conflict and disputes with any one of these parties. Most disputes can be resolved quickly and effectively through facilitated communications between decision makers.

If you are unable to resolve this conflict and reach an agreement seriously consider using an appropriate dispute resolution process to enable all the parties involved to discuss the problem, explore options, find a solution and restore their working relationship which is critical to the success of your business.  This is a better approach than resorting to costly and time consuming litigation in order to have a court make a determination for you.

What our clients are saying about our commercial mediation services:

I was involved in a dispute between a licensed club and their caterers which had escalated to a point where communications were breaking down and there was a risk that the business of both parties would fail. The issue was more a commercial and personal one rather than a purely legal one and I was looking at a mediator with a commercial bent. Following some research, I came across Chris Pitts’ details and proposed him to the club and my clients who both were happy to proceed.

Chris conducted the mediation in a very practical and user-friendly way and I am happy to say that not only was the dispute resolved but that the parties have satisfactorily continued their working relationship.

I would recommend Chris’ services for any commercial dispute.
