How can we help you?
Litigation is not about winning or losing - we always remain focused on the outcome, however, we approach every dispute holistically with a strong emphasis on trying to resolve the issues in dispute through a good outcome.
We believe in a team approach and work closely with our colleagues to bring all relevant knowledge and experience to your case. By adopting this approach, we have experienced that:
Strategic evaluations become more clear.
By looking at your case in the context of your wider circumstances, we are able to manage your case more effectively, plan ahead and make allowances for uncertainties that may be an issue.
Disputes are often resolved in a timely and cost-effective manner.
We do not subscribe to the model that litigation should be lengthy and expensive. While we are well-equipped to deal with cases that are complex and require long-term persistence, our focus remains on progressing your case toward resolution (be it by agreement or defended hearing).
Disputes are less emotionally draining.
We understand the stresses around going to court and continuously having to devote time and energy to a case. As much as we care about your case, we also care about your mental and physical well-being.

Dispute Resolution & Court Representation
Our strong team of litigators are committed to protecting the rights of our clients and approach each case with care and diligence. Not only does this ensure that our clients are treated fairly, but also that their case and circumstances are well understood.
All cases start with an extensive interview in order to gather all relevant information. Time is then taken to research the issues carefully, discuss them with our colleagues and form a strategic approach. Once this has been done, further research may be done before advice is given.
We place a strong emphasis on trying to resolve issues in a way that results in a good outcome for our clients. This will include negotiation, mediation and arbitration. If a matter is unable to be resolved by these methods, it will have to proceed to litigation.
We advocate strongly for our clients once a matter proceeds to litigation. We have a team of litigators that are experienced and well-versed in court procedure. Our holistic approach means that the arguments being presented in your case are always well-reasoned and compelling.
We are committed to providing high quality litigation services. We firmly believe that seeking accurate and tailored legal advice early in a dispute can present you with valuable options for a cost-effective and timely resolution. If you find yourself facing a dispute, our dedicated team of experienced advocates is here to support you through the process with care and diligence.
