We have extensive experience in representing clients involved in civil disputes. These are situations involving relationships between people.
We advise our clients in a wide range of disputes including, but not limited to, debt recovery, contractual agreements, business sale transactions, insurance claims and property transactions.
Where possible, we aim to settle disputes outside of the Courts but understand that, on occasions, litigation cannot be avoided.
As litigation can be an expensive process, we deliver our legal services in the most cost effective manner possible. It is our practice to work closely with clients who will be advised every step of the way until the matter is resolved.
We are experienced in all jurisdictions including Magistrates Court, Supreme Court and District Court matters.
