Litigation and Dispute Resolution

When you find yourself in a dispute, especially a commercial dispute, it can be stressful.

The harsh reality is that protracted commercial litigation not only can be costly but distracting. 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. 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:

  • Company, partnership, and trust disputes

  • Property disputes

  • Leasing disputes

  • Automotive and manufacturer disputes

  • Building and construction disputes

  • Priority of interest disputes

  • Security disputes

  • Debt recovery

  • Acquisition, disposal or management of assets disputes

If you need legal advice on a commercial legal dispute, please call us on +61 3 9052 3214 or email us at
