If you want to sue or are being sued, it is extremely important that you have lawyers who fully explain to you the process, your options and the advantages and disadvantages of each proposed course of action.

WE beat Gold Coast lawyers

In 2019, we crushed two leading Gold Coast litigation firms in the same commercial litigation matter with our superior command and understanding of the law. Remarkably, on each occasion the solicitor opposing us only realised that our view of the law as it applied to the dispute was correct after the Judge told them so, and they subsequently unsuccessfully sought adjournments mid-hearing. The result on each occasion was outright victory.

We have a perfect record of success against Gold Coast litigation firms. We beat them every time. Hands down.


The decision of whether to engage a barrister on your behalf is a complicated one which depends on a number of factors, including the monetary size of the dispute, its complexity and the stage in the proceeding. Despite the extra cost, having a good barrister advocate on your behalf can be a great investment that pays off later.


Litigation is normally an expensive process. You need competent representation to protect and promote your interests. We have the experience and diligence to help.

We can act for you in the Magistrates Court, District Court, Supreme Court, QCAT or the federal courts. We also are experienced in appeals against decisions of judges and Magistrates.

In order to save unnecessary expense, we will always explore ways to resolve the civil dispute without going to trial. There are many options. We can send through formal offers to the other side, have the matter set down for a mediation or conference or even just pick up the phone to the opposing lawyers to see what their position is and see whether the dispute can be resolved informally. Sometimes it is worthwhile to remember or discover the underlying motivations and interests of the parties to explore creative ways of resolving the dispute in question.
