As a matter of fact, conflicts are inherent to all commercial relationships. From the smallest day-to-day business decision to the largest international transaction, modern business life entails the risk of disputes arising between contracting parties. Where minor problems can escalate and damage corporate identity, major conflicts can threaten the very existence of a company.
