When our clients need to resolve disputes, we are in their corner. We take a highly strategic and commercial approach to disputes. We do not allow disputes to just ‘run their course’ – unless of course that is the client’s preference.
We are also acutely aware of reputational and commercial issues associated with disputes and regulatory actions, and we actively manage these factors in our practice.
Our expertise spans litigation and dispute resolution regarding:
- banking and financial services
- commercial and contracts
- private client
- property and building
- regulatory investigations
We act in all courts and jurisdictions, and handle disputes and litigation arising interstate and overseas. We are also highly skilled in alternative dispute resolution and have significant expertise in risk management and compliance.
A number of our senior lawyers are named in the Best Lawyers list.
‘Hall & Wilcox's expertise encompasses restructuring issues, turnarounds, bankruptcies, receiverships, voluntary administrations and liquidations alongside corporate recovery, distressed trading, security enforcement and insolvency-related litigation experience’.
