Litigation can be notoriously costly and onerous. Our experience conducting proceedings in all state and federal courts and tribunals has highlighted the importance of mitigating the impact of litigation on our clients. As such, we provide extensive pre-litigation advice and, where appropriate, advocate alternative dispute resolution such as mediation in order to achieve commercially prudent outcomes for our clients.
