Commercial litigation involves virtually every type of dispute that can arise in the business context. This includes breach of contract cases, partnership or joint venture disputes, shareholder issues, misleading and deceptive conduct, unconscionable conduct, breach of trust, breach of confidentiality, restrictive trade practices, building disputes (domestic and commercial), planning and environment matters, tenancy disputes (residential, retail and commercial), debt recovery matters and more.
If a dispute needs to be heard before a court or tribunal, then we will provide you with representation that is second-to-none, either having one of our own Lawyers appear or, where appropriate, briefing Barristers to appear (being Lawyers who are in court all day, every day).
