Family Law - We Are Here To Help

We are here to help

We appreciate that family and relationship disputes are sensitive and we aim to resolve them efficiently and effectively, whether by negotiation, collaborative law practice or, where necessary, through Family Court action. We are committed to the protection of our clients’ interests and those of their families and to providing cost effective solutions.

Banking & Finance - Non-Bank Solutions

Non-Bank solutions

We act for a wide range of clients within the financial services sector, from Responsible Entities of Managed Investment Schemes, to mortgage brokers, financial planners, private lenders and borrowers. We focus on building and maintaining effective business frameworks, and in managing legal, regulatory, and reputational risk for our clients.

Intellectual Property - Protect Your Brand

Protect your Estate

If you are wanting to make plans for the future and ensure your loved ones are taken care of in the event of your death, Nicholas James Lawyers’ team of Wills & Estate Lawyers are highly qualified to ensure you are as prepared as possible. Whilst death isn't something we like to think about often, when you are responsible for other people, whether it's your family or your business, it is something that needs to be considered.

Civil Litigation - Dispute Resolution

Dispute resolution

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.
