Defamation + Litigation

Advising in defamation, litigation + dispute resolution

We have years of experience and skill in assisting clients in defamation, commercial and civil litigation across a range of courts and jurisdictions.

We have lawyers that are proficient in helping you deal with each step in the process and ensuring you understand at all times what is going on and assisting you in preparing for future steps.

Defamation can be confusing at the best of times.  If someone has published material that you think is defamatory, get in touch and we will talk it through to see what rights you may have under law.

We know that going to court can be both financially and emotionally stressful, so we take care to work with you in developing a strategy that aims to provide the most efficient outcome.

After consulting with you, we will then agree to pursue the avenue which is best for you including dispute resolution, mediation, arbitration or formal court-based litigation.

  • Federal Court of Australia
  • Supreme Court of Victoria
  • County Court of Victoria
