08 Litigation and Dispute Resolution

Litigation everywhere from the High Court to the littlest tribunal, in NSW, interstate and overseas, international and local arbitrations, mediations, nasty demand letters, regulatory advice.

Nobody but a crazy person litigates for fun.  Disputes are an inevitable part of doing business, but they're distracting, unproductive, very expensive and an incredible drain on time and energy.  Much like going to the dentist.

So how, you may ask, can we make this experience anything but awful?  Well, we start by recognising that the focus of dispute resolution should be on the resolution, not the dispute.  Many litigators just want to litigate; switch them on, point them at the nearest court, and prepare for monthly invoices that will make your eyes water.  We see litigation as absolutely the last resort, not a process by which you pay for our entertainment.

Our team is extremely deep in experience.  There simply isn't a court, tribunal or type of fight in which we haven't been before.  We know how the system works and how to use it to your best advantage.  

We come in as soon as you smell trouble.  You get clear, concise advice on where you stand; we'll engage direct negotiations, mediation or any other alternative dispute resolution method we think might resolve the dispute; if arbitration is the go, we are all over that; if there are cross-border complications, we have guru expertise for that; if litigation has to be, then we have the firepower to take on the fight.

And here's the kicker: every other law firm will tell you that fixing fees for litigation is impossible.  We do it all the time, and it works just fine.  The secret, if you must know, is that we're focused on your problem, not our timesheets.
