Commercial Law

Resolution before litigation. Every single time, if possible.

Commercial law covers the people and organisations involved in business, commerce, trade, services, sales & merchandising. It’s also incredibly complex, and if you have to go to court it’s costly, time consuming and detrimental to your business.

That’s why we always recommend resolving the issue, before resorting to commercial litigation.

Business Disputes

Business disputes occur when someone is accused of failing to meet an obligation, or a relationship or transaction is misinterpreted by the parties involved, and there’s no meeting in the middle.

A contract would ordinarily resolve any conflict, however if the arrangement has been verbal as opposed to written, issues can arise.

This is the case in the majority of business disputes we deal with, and we’re skilled at resolving most of them with mechanisms including offers, informal mediations and settlement conferences.

Commercial Litigation

If resolution fails, and commercial litigation is the only way forward, we can advise, and act on your behalf in the NSW Local, District and Supreme Court, Federal Court & Federal Circuit Court of Australia, and the NSW Civil & Administrative Tribunal (NCAT).
