Litigation and dispute resolution

Disputes are sometimes an inevitable part of doing business. Disputes that remain unresolved may start affecting the profitability and productivity of a business. As legal professionals with extensive experience and knowledge of the law, we can help you manage and resolve your dispute, freeing you to continue to run your business. Disputes can also arise in workplaces, with neighbours, with builders or in respect to Estates.

Laws are constantly changing. The system of Courts and Tribunals and the different rules of each are difficult to follow without expert advice. Our lawyers have experience in acting for clients in all Queensland courts, the Federal Court and numerous Tribunals. We work with our clients to provide practical realistic advice and develop litigation strategies which will best serve their interests.

We have extensive experience in handling many different types of disputes including:

  • Claims relating to disagreement over contracts terms
  • Fencing and boundary disputes
  • Building and construction disputes
  • Property, Land Title and leasing disputes
  • Debt recovery
  • Franchise disputes
  • Partnership and shareholder disputes
  • Wills and estate litigation, including applications for further provision
  • Town Planning and environment litigation

Civil litigation can be a stressful and costly process. In many cases strict time limits apply and delay could mean you lose your right to claim. Obtaining good advice from a lawyer as early as possible can avoid wasted costs and improve the chances of early resolution.

Long drawn-out litigation has no real winners so we are committed to resolving disputes as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. Our focus is on achieving realistic commercial outcomes for clients. We litigate as a last resort, after first considering alternative dispute resolution mechanisms such as mediation or arbitration.
