Commercial disputes are not uncommon. Mostly they are resolved by mutual negotiation between the parties, but not always. From time to time, intractable disputes arise in the printing and packaging industries. Usually these relate to print quality or problems with equipment or software - and they can be costly if the dispute has to be settled in court.
Finding yourself in the middle of a difficult dispute can seem like a printer's or packager's worst nightmare - which is why we provide a comprehensive Dispute Resolution Service. Our print and packaging specialists have extensive experience in providing a range of support, depending on the circumstances of the dispute. These include short reviews and reports, single party assessments, single joint expert reports, expert witness reports and facilitation. The BPIF also offers mediation if necessary.
All are designed to offer a quick resolution and avoid costly legal proceedings.
