Our reputation and depth of experience in commercial litigation is something of which we are particularly proud. Our firm structure, expertise and dedication means each matter is undertaken with the same level of skill and the same commitment to ensuring positive outcomes for our clients.
We believe that we stand apart from other law firms across three key areas:
Although we are a boutique firm, we are committed to providing the level of service and standard of quality in our work that you would expect from larger law firms.
Unlike many law firms that are geared to handle certain types of litigation, our size and experience gives us the flexibility to deal with a broad spectrum of disputes. We are equally adept at acting in smaller claims as we are in large, multi-party claims.
We know that legal costs are an important issue and our clients want to see value for money. We strive for efficiency and effectiveness, without sacrificing quality. Most matters are able to be managed directly by a partner, or by an experienced lawyer under supervision, meaning time and money is not spent on unnecessary delegation, drafting and reviewing of work. For larger litigation matters, we incorporate paralegal support and talented junior barristers into our team.
We work closely with our clients to develop strategies for the issues they face and to help them achieve commercial solutions, be it through court proceedings, alternative forms of dispute resolution (including mediation, arbitration and expert determination) or by simply providing concise, practical legal advice.
Our commercial litigation practice is active in all areas of commercial law, and in all courts and jurisdictions, though includes:
- Commercial contract disputes
- Trade Practices advice
- Enforcement of security documentation, such as mortgages and charges
- Property disputes
- Professional negligence claims
- Restraint of trade matters (both enforcement and defence)
- ASIC investigations
- Commercial debt recovery
- Shareholder disputes
- Employment disputes (including terminations, fraud and theft of confidential information/intellectual property)
