Commercial Litigation

Pre-empting and resolving disputes to mitigate risk


Let’s be honest. Even the most idyllic dispute resolution scenarios see money, time and energy depleted—they keep leaders up at night, put pressure on important business relationships and potentially wreak havoc on your reputation. In our experience, negotiation, mediation and expert determination is the way to achieve early and cost-effective resolution. So that’s what you can expect from our team from the outset.

Fundamentally, we’re a team of uniquely experienced litigators and we love what we do. From the simple and straightforward, to the challenging and complex, we’ve got you covered locally and internationally across contractual and corporations law disputes, property disputes, arbitration and much more.

When it comes to defamation claims and proceedings, we provide coordinated and strategic advice to both sides, including appropriate control and use of confidential and private information, as well as managing sensitive matters to protect personal and corporate reputations. We know this is hugely important, so it won’t fall by the wayside.

Competition and consumer regulatory actions and private litigation, including consumer protection are a few other strings in our bow.

We’re good at nipping issues in the bud before disputes arise—that’s one of the reasons our clients keep coming back. They consult with us to manage distressed projects and know we can handle technical factual project and IT disputes, even those with contract and delivery performance issues, misleading and deceptive conduct, and equitable claims.

We’re truly a one-stop-shop. Our Insolvency and Restructuring team works with individuals, companies and liquidators in liquidations, receiverships, voluntary administrations, bankruptcy, workouts, restructures and asset recovery. We also support debt recovery, and debt and security enforcement.
