Civil Proceedings and Dispute Resolution

“Legally protecting your rights.”

Finding yourself involved in a legal dispute can prove unsettling and stressful, particularly if the dispute is with a commercial organisation or government body. You may find yourself involved in disputes related to landlord and tenant issues, neighbour disputes, unpaid bills as well as professional negligence, breach of contracts and/or agreements, intellectual property disputes and general business disputes. It is vitally important to seek legal advice if you are to fully understand the legal proceedings involved and the necessary steps to take to help secure the best outcome.

Increasingly, we are seeing people face defamation, in which their personal or professional reputation is brought into disrepute. Typically defamation can occur when a false statement has been made public via print, radio or television, and increasingly through social media sites. In such cases you could be entitled to bring action against the individual or institution responsible for questioning your character or conduct.
