Litigation and Dispute Resolution
Whether you want to set the record straight by taking legal action or whether you are being sued, sometimes litigation is inevitable.
At Goodman Group Lawyers we approach litigation with the two fundamental principles; effective and efficient litigation.
We will not pursue matters to court unless it is necessary. We will find and use effective methods of dispute resolution such as mediation and negotiation to reach a cost effective outcome for you. Most courts now require cases to be mediated so that all avenues of settlement can be explored prior to a matter being ready for trial.
Next, we will litigate efficiently by guiding you through the court process without resorting to unnecessary methods which may delay your case.
Our aim is to conduct your case in a cohesive manner by using our core values of effective and efficient litigation to reach the best outcome for you. In simple terms, we want good cases to be won and bad cases not to be unnecessarily pursued.
There are time limits within which you must begin your case otherwise you may lose your right to do so. Time limits also apply if you are defending a case and you may lose you right to defend if you do not comply with these time limits.
You need Goodman Group Lawyers to guide you through what may seem like a maze but one we navigate regularly.
Examples of some areas of law we litigate in are:
- Contractual disputes
- Shareholder disputes
- Property Law
- Building and Construction
- Compensation law including personal injuries and worker’s compensation
