Our practice is geared towards the conduct of major disputes which arise in the construction, infrastructure, technology, defence, energy and resource sectors. We are experienced in all forms of dispute resolution, including litigation, domestic and international arbitration, mediation, expert determination, dispute resolution boards and statutory adjudication.
We are familiar with the wide range of agreements used in project delivery and understand the interaction of complex project documentation. Our team has extensive experience in running major disputes throughout Australia, and other international jurisdictions. These disputes often concern defective work, termination, professional negligence, delays and cost overruns, latent conditions, claims for force majeure, interference by principals, claims under the Australian Consumer Law (including pre-existing trade practices legislation) and other technical issues.
We currently represent clients based in Victoria, Western Australia, New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia and Tasmania on disputes and other matters based in their local States.
Dispute management and avoidance during the project phase is also an important part of what we do for our clients. We proactively assist in reviewing and assessing issues which arise, to ensure that our clients’ rights are appropriately protected and enforced, and that a resolution is achieved quickly and cost effectively.
