Unity supports SBID in its important work on behalf of the design community and are pleased to offer their tailored services to support our professional network. The aim is to improve access to justice for designers and to provide a route to resolving legal problems and disputes in an efficient and economical manner.
Sometimes throughout the course of a contract, disputes can arise. Unity offer their expert guidance to help you navigate the legal landscape to resolve issues as smoothly and stress-free as possible. Unlike traditional legal firms, Unity don’t represent clients in court, hold money for clients or undertake conveyancing. In that way, they can guide you in choosing the right approach for your case.
