Dispute Resolution & Litigation
Life is full of interactions and dealings, which are often transactions and contracts between people and businesses. When expectations are not met or circumstances change, obligations may be breached and rights trampled on.
It is the role of the legal system to facilitate a just and efficient resolution to a legal dispute. Depending on the issues in dispute and attitudes of each party, it may be appropriate to seek to resolve the dispute through mediation, arbitration or a even a contested trial at Court.
The litigation process - from VCAT all the way to the Supreme Court - can be technical, drawn-out, and difficult to navigate. It is important to be properly-guided through this process to ensure that you are able to obtain the best-possible outcome in the most cost-effective manner, whether by negotiation, legal action or a combination of the two.
