I was referred to Boss Lawyers by another firm who cited Boss’ expertise in the area of law I required. I found Boss Lawyers rapidly understood my case and my needs, developed a winning strategy and delivered.



Professional and helpful I would have not hesitation in recommending Boss Lawyers to anyone requiring litigation work

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!

    We can review your case and help you decide what choice moves you toward the outcome you have in mind. With us on your team, you can act without stress because you will be in good hands from start to finish. Examining your case and comparing the possible outcomes is how we set the process in motion, and you stay in control each step of the way.

    Cases We Handle

    You probably would like to know what types of cases we handle before you enlist our support, which is a fair point. We handle almost any dispute solvable through litigation:

    • Debt Recovery
    • Construction Disputes
    • Media and Copyright Law
    • Property Disputes
    • Professional Negligence
    • Many More..

    All people have a duty not to put others in harm’s path, but the negligent or malicious actions of others can cause a lot of trouble. You need to take proactive steps to protect yourself and your rights when that happens, and you will be glad you did. Let our team guide you toward a fair outcome so that you can get justice and peace of mind. We will have your back and do everything in our power to help you get the outcome you want as soon as you enlist our support.

    Debt Recovery

    Not being paid money you are owed is a stressful and complex situation. If you are a creditor and someone is refusing to repay a debt, we can give you a hand. Take your fight to the courtroom and get a judgment for the amount owed. Bring copies of paperwork and other evidence that can help prove your case, and our team will worry about the hard part so that you can relax. Instead of being a professional lender, you might have let a friend or family member borrow money. The good news is that our team can help you collect a personal or professional debt.

    Construction Disputes

    You expect professional work when you hire a construction crew to handle a job, and you deserve to get the results for which you have paid. Not all construction crews live up to the expectations they set at the start, and some of them even fail to provide the quality they promised. You can set it right by contacting Boss Lawyers for litigation representation on which you can depend. We will take every step possible to get you the compensation you deserve because we care about your needs and want you to get justice.

    Media and Copyright Law

    Whether you wrote a book, created a song or crafted some other type of media, you put a lot of time and effort into your project. You then discover that someone else has been using your work without permission, and you would like to know where you can turn for a viable resolution.

    Our team will order the other party to cease using your copyrighted work right away, but we won’t stop there. If you would like to push the matter even further, we can take the violator to court and seek compensation for your trouble. We will take the time to put your case together and use the approach that offers the highest odds of success.

    Property Disputes

    As a tenant, you have certain rights and liberties that your landlord can’t violate. If you believe your landlord is treating you in a way that violates the law, you have come to the right place. We can help you understand if you have a case and what you must do to boost your odds of getting a reasonable outcome if you go to court. We want to safeguard your interests and will help you make the situation right as soon as we can. Many people are happy when they discover the results we can achieve because getting justice provides them with peace of mind.

    Professional Negligence

    When you hire a doctor, dentist, lawyer or some other professional, you are putting a lot of trust into that professional’s hands. Professionals who make mistakes or fail to uphold the standard of care for the situation can cause injuries or lasting damage to your life, and you don’t want to face it alone.

    We are here to give you a hand and guide you along the correct path so that you won’t need to face this difficult experience alone. After reviewing the evidence, we help you decide if your case is worth pursuing and explain the possible outcomes you might reach. If getting compensation for professional negligence is your mission, our team is the one for which you have been searching.
