We have an established litigation track record in resolving disputes early, including alternative dispute resolution and mediation, to minimise our clients legal costs and time
Our expertise includes formal mediations before Court and Tribunal officers and registered mediators; as well, we also use informal settlement processes to conclude disputes.
We take a proactive stance to ensure that our clients concerns are well understood and, if a dispute cannot be resolved at an early stage, that the matters in dispute are narrowed to the true basis of the dispute, saving our clients both time and money.
Our positive relationships with industry bodies and oversight organisations assist in finding common ground for our clients and other parties to a dispute. Our staff includes a registered BCIPA adjudicator, and we have significant experience in brokering arrangements in the commercial sphere to ensure business relationships get 'back on track'.
If a dispute is litigated, we have the expertise to vigorously defend your rights. We manage disputes both with and without barristers in a variety of jurisdictions and courts. We are very familiar with the trial process, ensuring our clients have every opportunity to be heard and that the strongest case is presented to the court.
We take an active interest in court proceedings from the beginning, keeping our clients informed of the progress and status of litigation so they know exactly what is transpiring during the court process.
Our lawyers practice in all Queensland State Courts (from the Regional Magistrates Courts to the Court of Appeal), as well as the Federal Magistrates Court, Federal Court and High Court of Australia.
Moreover, we are experienced at conducting matters before Tribunals and other arbitration and decision-making bodies, including the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal, the Medical Assessment Tribunal, Fair Work Australia and Q-COMP.
