Alternative Dispute Resolution

When the time is right, it can be cost effective and timely to seek the assistance of dispute resolution lawyers to resolve a matter outside of a court room or tribunal.

Our Expertise

Depending on our client’s needs, we can have one of our many dispute resolution and advocate lawyers appear at the discussions or we can brief counsel to help advance our clients’ position.

Alternative dispute resolution methods that a client may consider include:

  • Roundtable negotiations
  • Mediations
  • Arbitrations
  • Conciliations
  • Adjudication under the Building Industry Security of Payment regime
  • Our judicial system also encourages alternative dispute resolution methods and often requires such mechanisms before a matter is to be decided by a judge or member.

Our planning team often represent clients at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal during compulsory conferences.
