While we focus on dispute resolution, we also understand the stress of litigation and support our clients to manage the uncertainty of these situations.
When our clients instruct us in a dispute, they know two things about us. First, if a commercial resolution of the dispute is possible, we will strive to achieve it. Second, if a commercial settlement of the matter is not possible or is not the best option for our clients, we will run the dispute hard and smart and with a strategic plan.
We work with CEOs, CFOs, directors, owners and managers of corporates, businesses and trusts to assist with dispute resolution as efficiently as possible. We have experience across building and construction, company, contract and property disputes. We have expertise in corporate litigation, involving shareholders and/or directors, fraud and litigation prevention. We practice in the State Courts and the Australian Federal and High Courts.
Members of our team are formally qualified in alternative dispute resolution, as qualified mediators and arbitrators. These qualifications also enable us to act as independent experts in dispute matters and we are often engaged by solicitors to act as a mediator.
