We are a boutique commercial dispute resolution and litigation firm. We pride ourselves on getting results in all of our matters, no matter the size or complexity.

We are expert lawyers, litigators, negotiators and communicators with a philosophy of respect and fairness. This approach has seen us become one of the premier specialist litigation firms in Melbourne.

Ben Patrick started the firm in 2014 with the idea of simplifying litigation. The success of this approach has been the foundation of the success of the practice. There are now six litigation experts in the team, plus a group of dedicated support staff, each with a speciality that allows clients to access deep knowledge in particular areas.

Our Approach to Litigation

Our first priority is to identify the context of the dispute to understand what you want to do, and when you want to do it. Our insight and experience allows us to get you to your destination following the path of least resistance.

The key to our success has been addressing the heart of a problem rather than necessarily adopting traditional approaches to litigation.  We have a very strong network of contacts with barristers, experts and mediators who work closely with us get the best possible outcome in all types of disputes.   

There are many advantages in using us to resolve your conflicts. 

  • We work closely with our clients to develop strategies that will deliver the desired outcome in the most efficient way. Sometimes this involves decisive and comprehensive action, and sometimes it involve more subtle strategies.  Our team has the flexibility and skills to deal with the full range of options.
  • Each team member has specific skills that allow you to get advice from specialists in a particular area.
  • Our team is small enough to give you personalised service, but large enough to properly resource intense litigation.

Sometimes achieving your goals will require us to commence legal proceedings. If this is necessary, we will inform you up front about the cost and your chance of success, and then we will fight for you every step of the way.
