Commercial litigation 

Disagreements and disputes can arise whenever you’re interacting with others. In most cases, they’re going to be your suppliers, your consumers, or the government. When that happens, you need to have the right lawyer in your corner.

Escalating your issues to our team of commercial litigation lawyers is a critical step. We don’t take on that responsibility lightly. We’re experienced at the art of dispute resolution and we’re readily available to provide you with clear directions as to how you can best resolve your dispute.

Although we usually charge an hourly rate for litigation and dispute resolution, most cases can be broken down into different stages of work. If so, we’ll also offer fixed-fee quotes or provide a clear estimated budget for each stage. Contact us for an estimate.

Commercial understanding

As commercial lawyers, we don’t just limit our approach to the legal aspects of your transaction or your dispute – we put it into context.

We’re in business too (just like you) and so we understand the challenges of owning and managing a business, especially a small business. Our advice, recommendations and proposed solutions focus on providing outcomes that are legally effective as well as commercially practical.

Forget the sometimes confusing world of legal jargon and complicated explanations. We make things simple and have been helping business owners and managers for over two decades. Look us up to see how we’re able to help you with your business too.
