Dispute Resolution & Litigation

Our Dispute Resolution & Litigation team provides solutions, guidance and advice to people and businesses who become involved in disputes and court proceedings.

Our lawyers recognise that disputes and litigation create stress and uncertainty for those involved. We aim to minimise the impact of disputes and litigation on our clients by promptly analysing all the facts and issues and giving advice, not only as to the likely legal outcome, but by recommending various strategies to conclude the dispute or litigation in a way that delivers favourable outcomes.

For most clients, reaching a result that you can live with at an early stage is more practical and sensible than prolonging a dispute. For some disputes, court-based litigation is unavoidable.  Where legal proceedings are necessary you want an experienced litigation lawyer who is focussed on providing cost effective strategic solutions.  Our lawyers have appeared in the Federal Court, Federal Circuit Court, Supreme Court, County Court, Magistrates' Court and VCAT. 

The benefit of engaging an experienced litigation lawyer is that they have likely seen something similar to your given situation before and can draw upon that experience to provide you with the best advice available.
