  • Litigation & Disputes

Nobody wants to be sued, or find themselves in a stressful, disruptive legal dispute. Then again, sometimes you may be the one who needs to turn to litigation to protect your own interests.

Regardless of your current legal situation, our Brisbane team of litigation lawyers can give you the expert commercial litigation and dispute advice you need to resolve your issue quickly and easily.

We understand that resolving disputes can be stressful, time consuming and expensive.  Our experience as solicitors shows that success in litigation depends on early intervention and strategy. We work with you to resolve disputes efficiently, with the aim of achieving the best possible outcome.

Where litigation is unavoidable, our team of litigation lawyers has the experience to successfully resolve potentially expensive and protracted disputes.  We understand that litigation is a commercial as well as a legal strategy and are conscious of keeping your costs under control to achieve the most commercially acceptable outcome.  Our focus is on your success and making sure you take control of the dispute resolution process.

Depending on the size and complexity of the claim, the Court action may be brought or defended in the Magistrates’, District or Supreme Court. Disputes under federal legislation are determined by the Federal Court and Federal Circuit Courts. There are also various state based tribunals that can adjudicate on some disputes such as retail shop leases and building matters and including the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal (QCAT).

DAVID FROST - ARCHITECT

I worked with Mark Harley and his team at Boss on a recent sale of a business. It was my first business sale and I really didn’t have a clue about the process or contracts. Mark took me through the process  step-by-step and worked seamlessly with my accountant to make the sale as simple and stress-free as it could be. 

Mark was extra helpful when we had a few bumps in the road and patiently answered all my stupid questions… even when I asked the same question a few times. As well as being easy to work with, Mark was responsive, efficient, and always on time to meet deadlines and – most importantly – we closed the deal. 

I’m now launching two new businesses and Mark and Boss will be a permanent fixture on my “dream team” of advisers and I will gladly recommend him to anyone in need of  legal services. Thanks Mark and the Boss crew!
