Disputes

Experienced in all areas of dispute including alternative dispute resolution (negotiation, mediation, arbitration) and litigation.

We build strong and holistic relationships so that we gain a deep understanding of the issues in dispute and the goals to be achieved. Our advice and approach to any dispute is effective and with focus on successful outcomes and solutions.

A dispute can negatively affect your time, finances, energy, business, well-being, and personal and day-to-day life. We are highly experienced in alternative methods of resolving a dispute including settlement conferences, mediation and arbitration, and in formulating risk mitigation strategies with a view to avoiding disputes altogether.

Where litigation simply cannot be avoided, our team are strong and experienced litigators in all Australian state jurisdictions, the Federal Court of Australia, High Court of Australia and, internationally, including in the United States. You want us in your corner!

We do the worrying for you and aim to achieve the best possible outcome to enable you to get on with your life without being involved in protracted dispute.

We handle business, commercial, corporate, intellectual property, contract, equity, finance, building, construction, property and estate disputes.
