The dispute resolution team at WJM is able to assist clients with a range of litigious matters. We regularly act for companies, business and individuals.
The dispute resolution team is led by two experienced Principals, John Butler and Will Punivalu, as well as Senior Lawyer, Kristina Dimasi who have a wealth of experience in litigious matters.
At WJM we strive to provide our clients with practical advice with respect to their litigious matters. We understand dispute resolution can be difficult and challenging for our clients. We aim to conduct dispute resolution in a cost-effective and timely manner and provide targeted advice throughout. Not all cases end up at trial. Many are resolved through alternative dispute resolution, including mediation, and we can assist you with this process. In instances where a case does go to trial, we have the experience to handle all matters, including the most complex.
Our dispute resolution lawyers are experienced in all jurisdictions, including the Magistrates’, County, Supreme and Federal Courts, the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal, and also in appeal work through to the High Court. We are members of the Law Institute Victoria, members of the Litigation Lawyers’ practice section and the Building Dispute Practitioners Society.
Our areas of practice include:
- contractual disputes & general commercial litigation
- business disputes
- building & construction disputes
- retail & commercial tenancy disputes
- will disputes
