Our experienced team of lawyers acts for clients in complex commercial matters across a broad range of industries and jurisdictions. We provide sophisticated, strategic advice to assist in the protection of our clients’ interests whilst reducing the occurrence of contractual and commercial disputes.
When commercial disputes do arise, our lawyers support clients in making early, informed assessments of risk, by identifying the key legal and commercial issues and working to find solutions to enforce contractual rights and/or to minimise contractual obligations in a cost effective, certain and timely manner.
As part of this process, and where appropriate, we seek to negotiate and resolve commercial disputes through the use of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), including informal negotiation, conciliation, mediation and expert determination.
Although it is our view that litigation should and can be avoided through early involvement and ADR, at times litigation is the best (or only) viable course of action for the resolution of disputes.
In such situations, our litigation team has the depth of knowledge and experience in all stages of litigation to enable us to guide our clients through the most significant litigation challenges with the highest degree of competence and care.
Our litigation team utilises a depth of relevant expertise across diverse practice areas and industries to routinely represent businesses and individuals in a wide array of jurisdictions and litigation matters, including:
- Land Compensation
- Intellectual Property
- Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth)
