the Litigation process
The first step in any dispute is to issue a letter of demand to the other party. Once a letter of demand has been issued the parties are better positioned to reach a mutually beneficial settlement. This makes issuing a letter of demand imperative as it is an easy, cost effective and timely way to resolve your disputes.
Should litigation become necessary it is our litigation team’s priority to steer the matter towards a mediation. A mediation is where the parties to the dispute come together with an independent third party and discuss the main points in their arguments in a less formal environment. Mediation allows the parties to discuss the disputed matters without impacting any final, official determination.
No matter what stage you dispute is at our litigation team is ready to help you achieve your best possible outcome.
Commercial and Contractual Disputes
Commercial and contractual disputes are ubiquitous in today’s market and we are equipped to assist you in achieving your desired legal outcomes. Whether it is a claim in relation to misrepresentation, a simple contractual disagreement or a complex large-scale dispute we are more than willing and able to assist.
Founder, Director and Shareholder Disputes
Sometimes in business founders, directors and shareholders do not see eye-to-eye and a dispute arises. At this point the parties require assistance and support in resolving these disputes. At Law Squared we have provided counsel on many directors, founders and shareholders disputes from pre-litigation mediation to legal proceedings.
Debt and Asset Recovery
There are numerous ways in which a debt can be settled between parties without taking the matter all the way through to a hearing. An initial letter of demand will always be sent before issuing legal proceedings which should carefully set out the issues in dispute and an amount which you will accept in satisfaction of the debt. Once the letter of demand has been sent the door for negotiation discussions will often swing ajar. We can negotiate with your debtor’s on your behalf or alternatively commence legal proceedings on your behalf Australia-wide.
