Commercial Litigation

Commercial Litigation

Our litigation lawyers are smart, understand the commercial world and fight hard for the best interests of our clients. While we aim to settle your matter quickly where possible, we are well able to represent your interests in a smart and determined way.

When there is a dispute we aim to persuade the other party to agree to acceptable outcome as soon as possible.

We believe that you need litigation lawyers to be tough – but also persuasive and measured.

We understand that it is legal knowledge, combined with superior negotiating skill, which gives you the greatest chance of getting to the best outcome faster.

Dispute resolution does not always involve the matter being decided by a court or tribunal.

Our Dispute Resolution and Litigation Lawyers take a robust approach to enforcing our clients’ legal position. Sometimes this will be possible and best effected through persuading the other party of the strength of your legal position, including via mediation. Where a matter can be resolved early on, this is usually better for parties. Where possible, we will take this approach.

Sometimes, litigation is inevitable and we will present your case to the court or tribunal in a clear and forthright way. We have the legal experience and court knowledge to commence or defend commercial legal proceedings on your behalf.
