Litigation and Dispute Resolution
Izard Weston is primarily a commercial and maritime law firm.
Our philosophy is simple: we respect our clients and will provide practical, accurate and effective advice. We solve problems. We aim to add value, not cost.
We offer a range of services in specialist, niche areas, including: maritime and transport law (shipping, admiralty, international trade, regulatory and crisis management); Information law (privacy, confidentiality and internet issues); energy law (regulatory, downstream, and retail); and public and administrative law (improving regulatory compliance, challenging government action, advocating law reform).
Izard Weston’s commercial law specialists advise and guide businesses and other organisations of all sizes on all aspects of their operations, from establishment or acquisition through to sale or dissolution.
We provide advice and assistance on structures, governance, compliance (including health and safety) and contracts. We can also assist you with day to day matters such as bank lending and other loan or finance arrangements, buying or selling commercial property, leasing commercial property, employment law (including personal grievances), dispute resolution, and shareholders agreements and constitutions.
Our private client team can take care of all of your personal needs "from the cradle to the grave". We have an extensive trusts practice, and can help with relationship property and contracting out agreements, wills and estates, powers of attorney, elder law matters and general asset protection and estate planning.
On the property front, whether you are buying or selling a house, refinancing your mortgage, subdividing your property, dabbling in investment property or moving into a retirement village, we can assist. And, on the business front, we can help you with buying or selling your business, commercial property or farm and all that is involved in running them.
Litigation/dispute resolution services:
Our experienced team offer timely, pragmatic, strategic and innovative advice in relation to your options when disputes, or potential disputes arise. If disputes cannot be resolved informally, we will work with you to find the most suitable and cost-effective means of managing and resolving a dispute, retaining specialist barristers where necessary. We are experienced in handling all aspects of negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and other litigation options.
