Disputes over land or property often have far reaching consequences for multiple parties. In these circumstances, our advice and assistance makes the complicated: simple, outcome focused and effective.

Property or land disputes could involve claims about land you believe you are entitled to or land you believe is not being used or acquired by another properly. No matter what the dispute, we understand the impact it can have on the parties and the flow on implications to third parties such as lenders, tenants, sellers and purchasers.

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.
