We are often engaged in complex litigation in superior courts of record including in the Equity Division and Commercial Court of the Supreme Court of New South Wales and Supreme Court of Victoria respectively, and in the Federal Court of Australia.
We always try to resolve disputes as early and as cheaply as possible. We do this by adopting various methods of alternative dispute resolution and by being commercially orientated. Unfortunately, this is not always possible. Sometimes, it is necessary to follow a predetermined procedure or to escalate matters, even to litigation.
Our litigation & dispute resolution services are non-judgmental. We operate in all jurisdictions in Australia and provide assistance and advice at all stages of the dispute resolution life cycle. We pride ourselves on our history of achieving commercially beneficial outcomes for our clients, whether through alternative dispute resolution or litigation.
Out litigation & dispute resolution services include:
We offer general commercial transaction and advisory legal services across a range of subject matters. Our services include anything from drafting simple agreements or terms of trade to acting in complex transactions and agreements.
We act for all participants in the building and construction industry including builders, principals, and subcontractors.
We act for defendants to white collar criminal offences including taxation offences and offences under the Bankruptcy Act.
We often act for insolvency practitioners, creditors, directors, and distressed entities. We provide legal services in connection with personal, corporate, and association external administration and financial distress.
We offer advice and litigation services regarding all engagements with government including the exercise of powers and functions, freedom of information, privacy, probity and dispute resolution.
We act in disputes regarding both State and Commonwealth taxes including income tax, goods and services tax, payroll tax, land tax, duties, and tax compliance.
