Disputes are a part of life and sometimes we need assistance to resolve them.
They can lead to litigation through the Courts and in this situation we can help. Click here for more.
Court cases, however, tend to be stressful, time consuming and expensive.
Disputes are often better solved by alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation, negotiation, or arbitration.
This is an area where Downie Stewart has a very strong track record of success culminating in the creation of the DISPUTE RESOLUTION CENTRE.
We regularly assist with:
Construction and building disputes
Pension and superannuation issues
Challenges to wills
