We are experienced and highly respected litigation and dispute resolution lawyers. Our lawyers regularly appear in all State and Federal Courts and have appeared in the High Court. We regularly receive briefs from other members of the profession and the Bar.
Our approach is straightforward. Our priority is always achieving the best commercial resolution, but if settlement is not possible we run litigation strategically, efficiently and professionally. At all times we endeavour to communicate with clients about the next steps with explanations as to their advantages and risks.
We also understand the stress that is caused by litigation and our lawyers support our clients to understand the processes and overcome the uncertainty associated with litigious disputes.
We are experienced commercial lawyers. We can provide advice on the full life cycle of businesses - from incorporation or establishment, funding and the PPSA, intellectual property, supply/purchase/licensing and other commercial agreements, through to the sale, winding up or termination of the business.
We are also able to provide advice in relation to Federal and State taxes including income tax, CGT, GST, FBT, stamp duty and land tax.
We are available to serve as a town agent in the courts of South Australia.

The scope of our role as town agent depends on the circumstances of each matter. It may be limited to filing documents and providing general procedural advice or it may extend to assume a more substantive role.
