Litigation law refers to the rules and practices involved in resolving disputes in the court system. The term is often associated with tort cases, but litigation can come about in all kinds of cases. Likewise, most people think of litigation as synonymous with trial work, but the litigation process begins long before the first witness is called to testify. In fact, the vast majority of litigated cases never reach the inside of a courtroom.
Evans Lawyers primarily practice in the District & Supreme Court jurisdictions. We have a strong reputation for success in complex cases in the areas of Corporations, Construction & Insolvency Law.
Whilst Alternative Dispute Resolution is always a preferred option in trying to resolve disputes sometimes the parties in conflict can not agree which can result in litigation.
The process of litigation is complex and requires expertise in that specific area combined with a sensible and commercial approach.
We have acted and been successful in a number of large scale and highly complex Supreme Court actions involving shareholder oppression, breaches of the Corporations Act by Company Directors, Frauds, Loan Agreements and Construction Contracts.
