Commercial Litigation Lawyers

Have a question? Contact us

    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 commercial litigation 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 resolutions to resolve disputes for 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 court based litigation 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 Federal Court of Australia and tribunals. We are also experts in alternative dispute resolution techniques such as mediation and arbitration before initiating formal court proceedings.

    Frequently asked questions about litigation and dispute resolution

    ADR generally refers to an out-of-court, dispute resolution process that you can enter into voluntarily or by court order in order to reach an agreement. Examples of ADR processes are mediation, arbitration, conciliation.

    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.
