Civil Disputes & Litigation

We offer a wide-ranging civil litigation practice with a particular focus on insurance-based claims. We have a high profile within the insurance industry in Tasmania and regularly act for a number of the principal insurers in Tasmania, including the Motor Accidents Insurance Board.

We offer personable and experienced Hobart litigation lawyers who will guide you through the process of litigation with knowledgeable, practical advice in plain English, at reasonable hourly rates.

Our lawyers practice as both barristers and solicitors, giving us the flexibility to act as ‘in house’ Counsel and attend Court on our clients’ behalf. We also brief external Counsel as required.

We act for individuals, businesses and their insurers and can assist with strategic advice, exploration of alternative dispute resolution and early settlement of claims, through to the pursuit or defence of litigation.
