Commercial & Civil Litigation
At Barraket Stanton, our lawyers are focused on achieving the best possible outcome as quickly and as cost-effectively as possible. For this reason, we always try to use alternative dispute resolution (negotiation, mediation, conciliation, arbitration, adjudication and expert determination) so you avoid ending up in court.
When you are involved in a litigation matter, you need a lawyer who is a good strategist; one who knows when to be tenacious and when to be conciliatory. If you have a litigator with the experience of Richard Travers working on your matter, you will find yourself in exceptionally skilled hands. Richard spent nearly 20 years as a commercial litigation partner at a top-tier firm, and has a remarkable ability to cut through to the heart of a matter. He can produce a succinct analysis of your situation that will outline not only your options but also the most appropriate strategy.
Commercial disputes can quickly escalate from minor to major. Therefore, it is vital that you retain experienced litigators who are familiar with your business and industry, and who will look at the broader commercial picture and evaluate how litigation might affect your business. They need to ask the critical questions:
- Will it damage your company’s reputation?
- Could it affect the share price?
- Will it act as a massive drain on your company’s or organisation’s resources?
Our lawyers ask the tough questions, and focus on how to get the best possible result in the most cost-effective and timely manner possible.
