Legal process for commercial dispute cases 

We listen and assess your case confidentially 

During your initial consultation over the phone, we’ll take the time to listen and understand your individual needs. We’ll then map out the next steps and explain all the options available to you. 

We’ll build your case and keep you informed

Your expert legal team will work with you to gather all the evidence needed to support your claim. All evidence will be considered so we can assess your options and provide guidance tailored to your specific situation.

We’ll negotiate where appropriate to settle your claim

This may involve directly approaching the organisation concerned to engage in informal negotiations outside of the court process. 

We know that you’ve been through enough. Wherever possible we will seek to minimise any stress this process could have for you and resolve your claim in a way that is sensitive to your needs.

If required, go to court

Only a small percentage of cases result in a court hearing. If this happens, we will be by your side; providing support, compassion and skilled legal representation every step of the way.

Commercial disputes FAQs

Can I represent myself, or do I need a commercial litigation lawyer?

In short – yes. However, it’s not an option we recommend for ensuring a successful outcome. It requires a thorough understanding of the law, your legal rights, and entitlements, plus a lot of time and effort on your behalf to successfully move your case forward.   

Most people choose not to act for themselves and instead engage experienced commercial litigation lawyers who are experts in their field and can provide the knowledge and experience required to guide a case to a successful outcome.
