Dispute Resolution and Litigation in Australia

Baker & McKenzie's Dispute Resolution Group is one of the Australian office's largest practice groups and has the depth of experience and accomplishment to advise and represent clients in all matters associated with complex commercial disputes.

Our commercially pragmatic approach means we focus on the issues that matter to clients rather than simply managing the litigation process to a conclusion. We always take a strategic approach to disputes, identifying and guiding the client's legal team on any available options to promote early resolution but never losing sight of the need to resolutely promote our clients' best interests.

Our team includes some of Australia's leading litigation lawyers, each of whom is able to draw on the resources, combined knowledge and experience of the global firm's world class dispute resolution and litigation practice. This means that we have the privilege of being instructed by major national and international organisations in large-scale, complex litigation and dispute resolution across a range of industries and disciplines, including in relation to:

  • administrative law
  • advertising and marketing
  • arbitration and mediation
  • class actions
  • compliance
  • financial transactions
  • hostile takeovers
  • information technology & communications
  • inquiries/investigations
  • insolvency and reconstruction
  • international/cross-border disputes
  • media and broadcasting
  • partnerships and joint ventures
  • product liability
  • property and trusts
  • risk management
  • security enforcement
  • shareholder disputes
  • tax investigations
  • trade practices and competition

The introduction of data retention laws for carriers and carriage service providers has been discussed between the Federal Government and the Australian telecommunications industry for more than 10 years. In the context of heightened concerns over national security associated with developments in the Middle East, the Federal Government has decided to act on this issue.

On 30 October 2014, the Federal Minister for Communications, Malcolm Turnbull introduced the Telecommunications Amendment Bill 2014 into the House of Representatives.

The German Federal Ministry of the Interior has recently published its administrative guidance regarding a "no spy guarantee" for companies that enter into certain procurement contracts with the German Federal Government. Several recent press articles also purport that a number of Federal States, so far including the states of Bremen, Hamburg, Schleswig-Holstein and Saxony-Anhalt, also plan to introduce comparable guarantee requirements for their IT tender procedures.
Russia has a new federal law amending previous legislation on waste disposal, with most of the changes taking effect on 1 January 2015. We summarize these changes and assess the potential of the new law to generate economic incentives.
