Our Transaction Disputes team share a deep knowledge of transactions and are ever conscious of the wider impact a dispute will have on our client’s businesses. We take the time to understand our clients’ strategic objectives and to develop and execute a costed and agreed strategy to deliver the best commercial outcome which aligns with those objectives. Resolution, not litigation is our primary objective, but where litigation is required our win rate is better than 90%.

With several ‘Best Lawyers’ and ‘Rising Star’ accolades, our Transaction Disputes lawyers are regarded by their peers and clients as leaders in their field. The team work across all Australian jurisdictions and have worked on a number of complex, high-profile matters in the Federal Court, the Australian High Court and the Hague in the Netherlands.

We advise on:

  • Ownership disputes between shareholders (including minority oppression), directors, partner and joint ventures.
  • Completion disputes including earn out, completion account and bonus achievement negotiation and dispute resolution.
  • Sale and purchase disputes including misrepresentation & warranty claims, enforcement of restraints.
  • Investment disputes, where we protect investments by managing regulatory investigations and prosecutions and contract, property & project, insolvency and negligence claims.
