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
