Business disputes need not always lead to litigation

It’s almost inevitable that a small business owner in North Carolina or anywhere else will run into conflicts and disputes with other businesses or contentious individuals at some time or another.

But that is not always the best choice, and in some instances litigation can backfire so that the company loses more than it gains.
