Dispute Resolution

A resolution requires a number of subtle skills that begin with experience and patience. Our success rate is enviable, thanks to the expertise and competence of our professionals.

Sometimes, disputes can be settled quickly via focused negotiation and mediation. Other times, litigation is unavoidable.  Whatever the situation, our team is effective in dealing with disputes in both the courts and through the use of alternative dispute resolution.

Our Dispute Resolution team is particularly experienced in dealing with disputes in the construction, engineering, energy, intellectual property, information technology and property sectors.  Our experience covers:

  • Shareholder and partnership disputes
  • Misleading and deceptive conduct
  • Advising clients in investigations and inquiries
  • Property (including lease and borrowing) disputes
  • Equity litigation
  • Trusts disputes
  • Intellectual property
  • Information technology
  • Breach of contract and indemnity issues
  • Franchising disputes

After resolution is achieved, we help our clients avoid finding themselves in the same situation again by providing practical risk management advice and assisting them to implement that advice in their business.
