Zopata & Swiffy are two major online food delivery platforms; Zopata is based in Mumbai, India while Swiffy is based out of London, UK. Zopata and Swiffy have been arch-rivals for years and hold the majority of the market share all over the world. However, a new commercial entity, Super started affecting their market control by bringing cheaper and better alternatives. In order to consolidate their potential and dominate the global market, the two food giants decided to enter into a contractual agreement merging both the commercial entities. While all other terms & agreements were swiftly consented to and executed, the parties were firm on opting for Alternative Dispute Resolution methods in the event of any legal dispute in the future. The parties have therefore requested the service of Led & X Corporate Attorneys to draft infallible and ironclad agreements providing options for dispute resolution to the parties.
