When a dispute arises and the parties are unable to resolve it amicably, it often results in court action. If commercial litigation is necessary, certain considerations must be taken into account to maintain or defend such proceedings.
As with any litigation there are risks, delays, uncertainty and costs.
Gavel & Page lawyers possess the skill and experience to assist you from our initial review of the matter and strategy development, through the drafting of formal pleadings and collection of evidence, to the final court appearance.
Our experienced commercial litigation lawyers have the expertise to deal with the complex and technical nature of any dispute in clear, simple language. We keep you informed and ensure you understand the processes involved in commercial litigation, the risks associated with decisions, the status of your matter as well as the strategy being employed.
We protect your interests by proactively addressing any issues in dispute and are always available to answer your questions. While remaining conscious of costs and means, we provide the highest quality of service and communication to resolve matters and maximise the opportunities for an ideal outcome.
Commercial litigation is a broad phrase that encompasses a range of potential disputes and variables. There are too many different types of disputes to address them all here, but a few examples may include:
In principle, the general processes may be similar across commercial disputes, but each dispute has its own nuances and specific issues, requiring an experienced and tailored approach.
While the facts and circumstances leading to a dispute will differ from case to case, some scenarios that often result in a dispute include:
Resolving such disputes depends on the particulars of the contract and circumstances involved. Even the law governing the dispute may vary, according to the specific nature and facts of the case. There is no one-size-fits-all approach. Each matter must be considered independently.
By proactively seeking out important material early on, we assist you in making timely and informed decisions, saving time and money in the long run. Read more about our law firm’s unique mission under Our Story.
