Dispute Resolution & Civil Litigation

Litigation is an expensive, time consuming and stressful process for the parties involved.  We understand that resolving a dispute without the need for litigation is usually the most cost effective and efficient way to enable you to get on with what you do best.

General info

Castrikum Adams Legal - Bangalow Solicitors, Lawyers

We explore all alternative dispute resolution processes with clients, prior to recommending litigation.  If the matter can be settled by negotiation, mediation, arbitration, expert determination, or another alternative dispute resolution process, we will recommend that to our clients and we will fight for your rights through that process.

Civil litigation arises where two or more parties have conflicts or disagreements with respect to various matters which are not criminal related. These types of matters mainly focus on personal disputes in the Courts and Tribunals such as building disputes, money related issues, contractual arguments, disputes between landlords and tenants, rights and obligations relating to a company’s legal responsibilities, disputes around employment / contractor relationships etc.

On some occasions, litigation is the only alternative.
