LITIGATION & DISPUTE RESOLUTION

Litigation lawyers Sydney

Litigation and dispute resolution

Litigation constitutes an undesirable risk to most businesses. It can be disruptive and costly in monetary terms and to your time.

Our disputes lawyers are able to pre-empt and extinguish the threat of litigation before the risk arises through strategic legal advice.

Where litigation is a realistic possibility, we are able to effectively negotiate with the other party where appropriate in order to secure your position in terms of costs if it is necessary for the matter to proceed to trial, and potentially avoid the need for the time and expense of litigation by achieving an early commercial settlement.

If however litigation has become unavoidable, our disputes lawyers can react effectively and vigorously and have a broad domestic and international knowledge base to deal with the various issues which may arise. We act in all Australian Courts and Tribunals in relation to all types of business litigation as well personal disputes.
