Dispute Resolution & Commercial Litigation

Our Practice

Our dispute resolution team has extensive experience in managing and resolving commercial disputes.

Our focus is on protecting the commercial interests of our clients in an efficient, timely and cost effective manner.

Once engaged, we will quickly evaluate the problem and provide clear commercial advice on how to approach the dispute in the best interests of our client. When doing so, we assess the facts, our client's resources, the costs involved and the strengths and weaknesses of the case. In short, we provide our clients with sound commercial advice to best protect their business.

We make every endeavour to resolve disputes early by negotiation or mediation. Our objective is to keep clients out of court. However, if the formal court processes are required, our experience ensures that our clients' commercial interests are protected. We are committed to resolving disputes in the right way for our clients.

We represent clients at mediations and also independently mediate commercial disputes.
