Litigation

 

 

Have you or your business been involved in a dispute? Have you been threatened with legal action, or do you want to take legal action? If so, our litigation lawyers are here to help.

 

Legal disputes often require a great deal of resources. We provide timely and comprehensive legal services that ensure you are not faced with unnecessary costs and can return to your daily operations as soon as possible.

Expert representation against legal disputes

Our team of litigation lawyers have years of experience and expertise in representing clients in commercial and complex litigation matters, as well as resolving corporate disputes using alternative resolution processes, such as arbitration and mediation.

 

We approach commercial disputes with a simple aim – to achieve the best possible outcome for you. Quite often this does not involve court action but a satisfactory commercial resolution prior to litigation.

 

However, sometimes the only way to solve the problem is through the Courts. If court action becomes necessary, we have the skills and experience to take on any complex litigation. We will issue proceedings quickly and progress with your case as efficiently as possible. If there is an opportunity to settle the case before it gets to a final hearing, we will provide you with all the information you need to make a sound decision.

We offer expertise in all areas of litigation and dispute resolution, including:

  • Contractual and commercial disputes
  • Partnership and shareholder disputes
  • Building disputes
  • Employment disputes
  • Trade practices
  • Insurance litigation
  • Estate litigation
  • Professional negligence claims
  • Debt recovery
  • Bankruptcy and insolvency
  • Intellectual property disputes
  • Trademark and copyright infringement

Commercial litigation

Commercial litigation is the process of taking a commercial claim through Court. It generally involves two or more companies, or businesspeople that are in dispute, and who have been unable to negotiate a resolution.

 

With offices in Narrogin, Busselton, Margaret River and Perth, our commercial litigation lawyers are always within reach. We have extensive experience in all WA jurisdictions including the Magistrates Court, District Court and Supreme Court.

 

Some of the common commercial litigation matters we negotiate range from debt recovery, employment and contract, mergers and acquisitions to large scale complex commercial matters between corporations.

Debt recovery

We provide a fast and efficient legal service for demanding and collecting unpaid debts. This includes letters of demand, issuing court proceedings, bankruptcy and obtaining judgements. All of our commercial litigation lawyers have excellent negotiation skills and will work with you to achieve sound commercial outcomes.

 

 

Civil litigation

A civil litigation lawyer settles disputes between two or more parties who have a disagreement about non-criminal affairs. These mainly focus on personal or money related issues. Cases may involve landlord and tenant disputes, insurance claims, affirming personal injury, real estate affairs, education laws and divorce related issues.
