Disputes and litigation can involve significant costs, in money, time and distraction. Where court action is the best option, or cannot be avoided, we manage and drive the process to best meet the commercial and legal objectives of the client.
We have a depth of experience in resolving disputes outside of the traditional court process, this includes arbitration, specialist tribunals and adjudication processes, implementation of expert determination processes, informal settlement conferences, and mediation. We seek opportunities for our clients to utilise these processes wherever circumstances suit, to conclude matters on commercial terms and avoid the expense, distraction and uncertainty of ongoing litigation.
We act in a range of commercial and industry spheres. We advise on legal issues including contractual disputes, fiduciary and tort obligations, statutory rights and quasi-criminal and “white collar” offence provisions.
Our clients include public and private corporations, individuals, partnerships, not for profits, and statutory and government agencies and entities.
We have experience in the major Courts, in specialist courts and tribunals, in disciplinary tribunals and enquiry processes, in administrative and review proceedings, and in the conduct of private arbitrations, mediation and structured negotiation processes.
