Mellor Olsson has, for its entire history, had a significant general commercial litigation and dispute resolution practice, acting for both plaintiffs and defendants.
The dispute resolution team has many years of experience handling all manner of litigious disputes. We regularly appear in all of the Federal and State Courts, as well as various Tribunals.
There has been an increasing prevalence of Government entities being involved in litigation over recent years. This has meant that these clients are regularly needing to seek advice and be aware of their legal obligations under the vast range of legislation which they are subject to. Mellor Olsson is well placed to assist Government clients with those needs.
We have acted for Government clients in a range of property and leasing disputes, encroachment matters, judicial review proceedings, compulsory land acquisitions and general contractual disputes and have expertise across a broad range of disciplines such as insolvency and bankruptcy matters, defamation proceedings, claims under the Competition and Consumer law, claims against insurers, and negligence claims.
