Dispute Resolution & Avoidance

We are experienced in representing clients in superior courts and tribunals and using alternative dispute resolution methods to resolve contentious matters.

We also have particular experience in managing and strategically positioning our clients in contested situations well before they come anywhere near a court.

In a time of stress or crisis, perspective is often lost and making any decision at all can seem like a good one.  We recognise this can be a recipe for costly mistakes. We approach legal disputes by:

  • controlling time, and
  • systematically developing and implementing the best strategies for the situation.

  • Arbitration and Mediation
  • Building and Construction Disputes, including Security of Payment Claims
