If you are having a dispute over a contract or a particular clause in a contract we can help you identify the best means of resolving the dispute cost effectively.
That could be effective negotiation or mediation or it could be the prompt issuing of a default notice or termination.
We can provide you with the best advice on practical solutions to resolve your dispute regarding a breach of contract claim.
Our practice is located outside of the Perth CBD and because of this our hourly rates and fixed prices for commercial work and for litigation are 20% lower than the standard rates charged by most Perth law firms. Our rates are extremely competitive compared to the rates charged by other commercial law firms.
We act for parties in litigation in prosecuting or defending claims in the Federal, Supreme, District or Magistrates Court on the basis of a fixed, affordable, fee paid monthly as opposed to charging an hourly rate. If we are engaged on that basis we charge a set fee, in return for us remaining on the record as acting for you in the action for a fixed period. During that fixed period we will represent you and deal with whatever matters arise in the litigation during that time, including all court appearances and drafting of all court documents.
For more information regarding see Hourly and Fixed Rates.
