We bring strategic, commercial and pragmatic solutions to disputes and we are committed to obtaining the best outcomes for you. We understand that your time is precious and disputes are challenging in more ways than one. We recognise that the cost of a legal dispute is not just financial and we understand the impact that a dispute can have on your time, energy, business, personal and day-to-day life. We aim to bring peace of mind and to ease those burdens.

We are highly experienced in alternative dispute resolution and risk mitigation strategies including in settlement conferences, mediation and arbitration. Where litigation cannot be avoided, we are experienced litigators in all Australian state jurisdictions, the Federal Court of Australia, High Court of Australia and, internationally, in the United States.
