Any entity involved in business – stakeholders such as employees, suppliers, customers, trade unions, civil society groups and shareholders, for example – that happens to find itself at the sharp end of a dispute is potentially facing a veritable avalanche of trouble, accentuated by claims, counter-claims, accusations and aspersions. Furthermore, in an international context, disputes can be far more complex and challenging to resolve, requiring recourse to unfamiliar local laws, language and customs.
