Litigation and dispute resolution

Our Brisbane-based commercial litigation lawyers have many years of experience in litigation and dispute resolution, securing countless successful outcomes for clients.

Cooper Grace Ward’s litigators are known for their strategic, commercial and practical approach. We build relationships with clients to run cases in a way that suits their situation and resources. Often that involves resolving disputes through negotiation outside the court process. Other times – where our clients want to run cases to trial – our commercial litigation lawyers have the experience, expertise and resources to strongly represent their interests.

Our Brisbane based litigation lawyers represent a wide range of clients nationally in litigation and disputes, including listed companies, private companies and individuals, local and foreign governments and quasi-government regulators.

Why Cooper Grace Ward gives you the edge

Our litigators have the significant advantage of being part of a large commercial law firm, which means they are able to draw on the specialist expertise of many other market-leading practice teams. Where necessary, we assemble multi-disciplinary legal teams to work on cases.

As one of the leading Brisbane based law firms, we have represented clients in high profile, hard fought, and complex business litigation cases. Our litigation lawyers help commercial clients resolve more straightforward contentious situations that arise as part of day-to-day business operations.

We work in every legal forum, from state and federal courts to alternative dispute resolution proceedings, along with tribunals of all kinds.

Cooper Grace Ward is one of the largest commercial litigation law firms in Brisbane. As such, we handle all types of disputes and legal representation including:

Market recognised litigation lawyers

Business sales are often fertile ground for allegations of contraventions of the Australian Consumer Law, but it will take more than a misleading statement for a court to grant relief. A recent Queensland Court of Appeal case demonstrates a common scenario.
