Dispute Resolution

BAL’s dedicated Litigation and Dispute Resolution team is experienced in matters in all courts and tribunals, up to and including the High Court of Australia. Whether it is a small debt recovery matter, an administrative merits review, or a highly complex commercial dispute, we have the experience and expertise to deal with it.

We provide sound, cost-effective solutions through the delivery of strategic, considered and frank practical legal advice and solutions. Our lawyers are familiar with all common forms of alternative dispute resolution, including conciliation, negotiation, mediation, arbitration and expert determination and will recommend the most appropriate use of these options throughout the course of a dispute.

Where a dispute cannot be avoided or resolved through alternative dispute resolution, we have the experience and expertise to advise and navigate your business through the conduct of court proceedings.

In addition to the conduct of litigious matters, BAL can advise your business on risk minimisation strategies, with a view of implementing systems to minimise the number and impact of disputes.

Our focus is always on providing sound and cost-effective, future-proof strategies, often utilising alternative dispute resolution methods. We can provide pre-emptive risk management advice and work alongside you to develop tailored dispute prevention systems that can save your business from the impacts of unnecessary or avoidable litigious proceedings.

Where a dispute cannot be avoided, we will represent you in the necessary court of proceedings, representing you with determination every step of the way.

Leasing Disputes

Our Litigation and Dispute Resolution team has extensive experience in the management of leasing disputes.

Debt recovery

Good debtor management is imperative for the sustained financial health of any business. If poorly managed, the consequences for cash flow and growth can put a business at greater risk of insolvency.

Good debtor management relies on robust internal systems, well communicated trading terms and processes in place for when debtors refuse to pay.  Our team will work with you to put in place a debtor management strategy that ensures your business’s financial goals are future-proofed.
