Dispute Resolution

Commercial dealings or even every day life can lead to unwelcome disputes.
We are experts in resolving all kinds of disputes in a quick and cost effective way. We can help you make sense of complex problems.

We look for pragmatic settlements whenever possible and a commercial solution. We never lose sight of our clients' objectives. We have the expertise to handle difficult litigation at the highest level where necessary.  We also resolve disputes by other means such as mediation and understand that being able to negotiate a solution is often just as important as being able to fight for it.

We offer a full range of litigation services including commercial disputes, contentious trust and probate matters, intellectual property issues, insolvency, asset/debt recovery and more. We are experienced in handling every type of commercial and residential property dispute. With niche practices in sports, education, entertainment and other dispute areas, there is a considerable depth to our expertise.
