Litigation and Dispute Resolution

MinterEllison has an outstanding track record in the strategic resolution of disputes throughout Australia and the Asia Pacific region and is recognised as a leader in dispute resolution. Our practice has renowned depth of knowledge and expertise in every main land capital city of Australia, in New Zealand and Hong Kong. This breadth enables us to meet our clients needs quickly and seamlessly and to access courts in all jurisdictions expeditiously when injunctions are required.

Our aim is to assist clients to avoid disputes wherever possible, but we realise that disputes are sometimes an inevitable part of doing business. We work with our clients to provide practical advice and devise litigation strategies that realistically identify the prospects of success. Where appropriate, we explore alternative dispute resolution mechanisms such as mediation or arbitration.

We act in some of the most complex and important litigation in the Australian market, and have significant experience representing clients involved in high profile litigation, investigations by regulators including the Australian Securities and Investments Commission and other government inquiries.

We are known for our strength in finding commercially-focused solutions to resolve disputes. The Asia Pacific Legal 500 describes MinterEllison's dispute resolution team as 'results focused' and 'very commercial', while Chambers Global 2010 applauds our lawyers for 'excellent responsiveness' and for being 'very accessible'.
