Civil Litigation


Strategic, bespoke advice

Our approach to civil litigation is as follows:

  • we will do everything in our power to protect your interests;
  • we will work closely with you to find tailored solutions to your legal dispute;
  • we will provide you with a budget for your case throughout the litigation; and
  • we will use alternative dispute resolution methods, where appropriate, but are prepared for trial if your case needs that approach.


Specialized areas of Civil Law


For businesses, past due accounts can have a detrimental effect on profits. Maximizing recovery of commercial debt is of crucial importance. Our lawyers have the experience and know-how to provide you with a timely and cost-effective approach to dealing with these matters as they arise. We work with our clients to secure payment of the debt straight away or attend at court to obtain a judgment.

Commercial Litigation

Our lawyers have experienced assisting business clients with various types of disputes including breach of contract including non-payment and non-performance. We have helped clients involved in landlord-tenant disputes and we have experience dealing with insurance claims arising from negligent workmanship.

We offer strategic advice and we understand that businesses need tailored advice as to the merit and value of any potential claim that they pursue or defend. We aim to provide well-costed pragmatic solutions for our clients.

Sexual Assault

Our lawyers are experts at representing individuals, whether they are a survivor of sexual misconduct or whether their characters have been defamed by a wrongful accusation.

For survivors, we work tirelessly and sensitively to obtain justice by helping our clients better understand their rights and options so that they can obtain some degree of closure and a fair resolution, whether at trial or by way of an out of court settlement. For clients who have been defamed, our approach to clearing our clients' names and defending their reputations is to take cases to trial as the best recourse for closure in this situation is a successful Supreme Court judgment.

Our lawyers take the following approach: we are proactive and work collaboratively with our client; we do our due diligence first so that we only start lawsuits we are likely to win; we always tell our clients the answer they need to hear, not the answer they want to hear; we are empathetic and pragmatic; and, where appropriate, we use negotiation and/or early resolution procedures such as strike applications and summary trials.

For this section the questions could be general or specific to each practice area. If the questions are about general knowledge, this section will repeat on every practice area page.

How much will this cost?

Some firms offer a fixed fee, but that isn’t always in the best interests of the client. On occasions, that is an arrangement that can encourage shortcuts to be taken. While there are cases in which we’re able to offer a fixed fee, we do what’s right for the individual client, not what’s easiest – and that means no cutting corners.

My husband has been arrested. I was told he will be before court in the morning. What should I do?

First, speak to us. Police can grant bail, but there are several exceptions in relation to serious charges, and if the defendant has previously contravened bail conditions. Your solicitor can advise of ‘exceptional circumstances’ and if that is necessary to grant bail. If your husband has been arrested on charges of assaulting you, his solicitor will not be permitted to speak with you. In this case, ask a friend or family member to contact us.

There’s a warrant out for my arrest. What should I do?

Quis aperiam doloremque doloremque optio porro molestias in voluptatibus. Voluptatem cumque reiciendis quod consectetur excepturi aliquid omnis quia soluta. Excepturi velit molestiae quos dignissimos rerum magnam quas repellat. Recusandae reprehenderit ame

What should I wear to court?

As your legal counsel, we’ll look the part but it helps if you apply the same consideration to your appearance. No need for a suit but look smart and a bit dressed up. It’s important to be seen to be making an effort to show your respect for the Court.
