Experienced Litigation Lawyers

Commercial litigation concerns bringing conflicts before the courts to be resolved. They will generally involve two or more parties – companies, directors, individuals – who have not found another way to satisfactorily reconcile the matter in question. Litigation can include mediation, arbitration, court appearances, and class actions.

Typical commercial matters that get brought before courts include disputes over compliance with contracts, employment issues (including unfair dismissal), corporate governance, debt recovery, conflicts between landlords and tenants. In most cases, one party will decide the matter cannot be resolved other than by way of taking it to court for a judge to make a determination on.

We will always attempt, where possible, to resolve conflicts without having to go to court, either through negotiation, mediation, or other forms of dispute resolution.

Why You Need a Commercial Litigation Lawyer

Commercial litigation can be complicated, requiring familiarity with the court system and lawyers (and barristers) with experience in business and corporate law. With OpenLegal, you get the legal support you need in a way that makes sense. Our lawyers will work closely with you throughout your matter to ensure you understand your legal matter. This way, we can get the information we need to guide your matter to the best possible result. We manage disputes and litigation in a way that appropriately balances maintaining a relationship with the other side, with acting aggressively, or taking a more moderate approach depending on circumstances.
