When facing potential dispute situations, cost, reputation and other significant implications need to be carefully managed. We also understand that clients generally seek the most commercially viable outcome, rather than a ‘big win’ in Court.
The HWL Ebsworth Lawyers Dispute Resolution group conducts matters in all major Australian courts and tribunals, while also being experts in alternative dispute resolution techniques, particularly mediation and arbitration. The group uses cutting edge e-discovery technology to maximise operational and cost efficiencies when conducting large scale and complex litigation.
Acting for large listed entities and government departments and agencies, through to privately owned businesses and individuals, the group is experienced in adapting its approach to reflect the size and complexity of the dispute whilst constantly remaining sensitive to commercial considerations.
The team is also alive to regulatory and dispute pitfalls which, if addressed in a risk management context, can often mean avoiding a dispute in the future. Seeking advice from our specialists at the commencement of transactions or contract negotiations means that commercial business objectives are balanced against risk measures, providing positive long-term solutions.
