litigation &
dispute resolution.


Conflicts are an unfortunate part of doing business, they distract you, add stress to your life and put a strain on time, energy and resources.


Our lawyers are strategic, and work with our clients and their advisers to identify and minimise the potential for costly and avoidable disputes.


Occasionally litigation is unavoidable. We provide clear, specific and pragmatic advice that is focused on what you need to hear, which may not necessarily be what you want to hear. We are experienced in court-based litigation as well as tribunals and arbitrations across multiple jurisdictions, including regulatory investigations and prosecutions involving the ATO, ASIC, ACCC, AFCA, QBCC and WHS.
