The first step to resolving your commercial dispute

Our team of litigators are experienced in successfully representing clients in relation to highly complex commercial disputes and in cases that proceed to the High Court and Court of Appeal.

When advising you on a commercial dispute, our aim is to protect your commercial interests and successfully resolve your dispute as quickly and efficiently as possible in your favour. We achieve this through delivering strategic advice on how the claim (or defence) should be managed, and implementing this strategy to its full effect.

 

Work highlights

  • Reinstated a dissolved company to the register and (much to the client’s delight) brought a successful claim against its former accountant who had misappropriated funds from that company’s account prior to overseeing its dissolution.
  • Acting for a property developer involved in a boundary dispute, using a novel approach to force the other party into a corner, whereby either the credibility of their expert witness would be undermined or they would have to agree to something that would enable the developer to both sell its property on free from any dispute and also to retain significant bargaining power with the other party in the future.  In this instance the credibility of the other party’s expert was undermined, following which they settled immediately.
