Negotiation and mediation

 

We focus our efforts on negotiation and mediation to resolve a matter rather than prematurely taking matters to Court. Not only does this save you money and time, it reduces any potential emotional distress. Instead of spending significant amounts on our legal fees, your matter may settle quickly and cheaply outside of Court. 

Litigation in court

Sometimes court is unavoidable. If so, rest assured we will represent you and your claim passionately and pragmatically. Whether you find yourself being sued or you need to bring court proceedings against a party, we will guide you through the court system, aiming to achieve your desired result. 

Our lawyers have experience in jurisdictions including the Magistrates’, County and Supreme Court, Family Court as well as Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT), Victims of Crime Assistance Tribunal (VoCAT) and the Fair Work Commission. 

 No matter what litigation you are facing, we are equipped and ready to assist.
