When you find yourself in a dispute, especially a commercial dispute, it can be stressful.
The harsh reality is that protracted commercial litigation can be costly and distracting. Even if you’re not cost-conscious, you will need to spend a lot of your time with your lawyer (much more than you want). Most of the time, you need a commercially viable outcome rather than a ‘big win’ in court.
When dealing with commercial disputes and litigations, our lawyers like to move quickly and work closely with you in order to minimise the impact on your business and costs to protect your reputation as well as your resources. TNS Lawyers is all about being strategic and delivering timely and cost-effective dispute resolutions to clients.
That being said, if a matter does become litigious, we use our technical expertise to achieve the best possible outcome for you. Most importantly, we work hard to explain the process and ensure you don’t receive any unwelcome surprises.
The TNS Lawyers team has extensive experience in running litigation not only in Melbourne but in all major Australian courts and tribunals, while also being experts in alternative dispute resolution techniques such as mediation and arbitration.
We can assist with:
What is alternative dispute resolution (ADR)?
Alternative dispute resolution generally refers to out-of-court processes that you can enter into voluntarily or by court order in order to reach an agreement. Examples of ADR processes are mediation, arbitration, conciliation.
How long does a litigation case take?
The duration of litigation proceedings would depend on the size and complexity of the dispute. It also often depends on how 'busy' the courts are. It's best to give us a call to see what the current situation is. Generally, to get a trial date, you're looking at over a year.
Is a litigator a lawyer?
A litigator, although not necessarily a lawyer, is often one given it's the practice of litigation.
We only do what we do best. We don’t dabble in areas that we don’t practice in every day.
We are results-driven. People say you should focus on the journey but we disagree. We focus on the results we get for our clients.
Ever wonder what it’s like being able to “phone a friend” and that friend happens to be your lawyer? We make sure you have a good experience with us every step of the way.
