Are You In Dispute With Someone?

Disputes and disagreements are all too common in both private and business situations. Common scenarios are a breach of a contract or agreement, default by a retailer/supplier in supplying goods, untrue allegations made against you or your business, or someone else using your design or copyrighted product.

Every business and organisation will occasionally find itself involved in disputes with suppliers and customers, or between shareholders and directors. Private individuals can easily become engaged in disputes – whether they are pursuing their own rights, or on the receiving end of a claim.

Protecting Your IP Rights And Reputation

Many businesses and individuals who own copyright and other intellectual property rights need to monitor their use, to ensure someone else is not using and profiting from their ideas and creativity. A quick and forceful response can nip such use in the bud, preventing IP rights being exploited for someone’s benefit, and also stopping their rightful owner losing market share.

A business’s online reputation is becoming increasing important, with customer reviews – good and bad – being one of the ways potential customers decide whether to buy, book or visit. How to protect your online reputation, and how to respond to negative comments, is a vital consideration for any business or organisation.

In the online world, an individual’s reputation can easily be damaged through untrue comments on social media. This can amount defamation as much as if they were printed in a newspaper. It is important to make sure that such comments are withdrawn quickly before they circulate more widely. In serious cases, you can claim damages.
