On other pages we have described some of the specific areas of litigation (court work) that we practice in.
Our aim in all areas of litigation is to facilitate the just, quick and cheap resolution of the real issues in dispute in a way which is satisfactory to our clients. In almost all cases we attempt to resolve matters through Mediation, settlement conferences or informal settlement negotiations either before proceedings are commenced in Court or in the early stages of any proceedings.
Although it is often necessary to commence proceedings to force other parties to be reasonable in negotiations, we are able to settle the vast majority of our cases without the necessity of a trial.
We appear regularly in all New South Wales and Federal Courts including Local Courts, the District Court, the Supreme Court, the Federal Court, the Federal Magistrates Court, the Family Court and the High Court.
We also appear in commissions and tribunals (subject to the rules of those bodies as to legal representation) including Fair Work Australia, the Industrial Relations Commission, the Guardianship Tribunal, the Administrative Decisions Tribunal, the Consumer Trader and Tenancy Tribunal and The Human Rights Commission.
Some of the areas of litigation in which we practice are as follows:-
