Commercial litigation is complex which is why you need experience on your side.
If you are looking for a Melbourne based litigation lawyer or dispute resolution lawyer we can help you.
Our litigation lawyers are experts in litigation and dispute resolution.
Our strategy in all litigation is to find the quickest solution to your problem. By doing this the dispute resolution process will be cheaper and cost effective. We always attempt to resolve disputes before court proceedings are issued. This reduces cost, time, inconvenience and the distress often associated with litigation.
Each case is unique and has to be assessed and handled on its own facts. We do this by implementing strategies learnt over years of handling commercial disputes. Our aim is to recognise your desired outcomes but at the same time factoring the merits of a dispute and the commercial realities. This can only be done by understanding the strengths and weaknesses of both sides’ arguments and being honest with our clients on the chances of success. Whether that is defending a commercial dispute or commencing one.
Where litigation through the courts becomes inevitable we will give you clear advice based on the information we have on the merits of your case, the likely time it will take and an estimate of the cost.
Through the court process there will be a court ordered mediation this gives the parties an opportunity to meet in a structured process with an independent mediator who will assist the parties to reach a resolution. Many commercial disputes are resolved during the mediation process. There are other mechanisms to resolve a dispute such as what are known as “calderbank offers” and “offers of compromise” these if used carefully can also increase the chances of a dispute being resolved cost effectively.
