Our Practice Areas
Within our specialties of Litigation, Mediation and Insurance Law
there are several categories.
Wills and Estates
The value and complexity of most estates are increasing. It is worth retaining an independent lawyer to resolve such disputes. Also, issues of legal capacity such as for Powers of Attorney, personal Guardianship and/or financial Administration require independent, expert advice.
Life, TPD and Income Protection
With the reduction of claimant rights in third party claims, comes an increase in first party insurance cover in life, TPD and income protection. This firm is long known as a firm to which other lawyers refer the most high value and complex matters.
Body corporate life was not meant to be easy but with your courage and our dispute resolution methods it will be better; delightful even. It is a matter of knowing and taking advantage of the statutes and rules. We apply proper legal and importantly, emotional intelligence.
If you want an insurance compensation firm that does not advertise or treat clients as a number, you have found the right firm. We enjoy results in motor vehicle, work and public liability claims. Due to our staff’s extensive history, working in-house with insurers, our clients have an unfair advantage.
Challenging though it may be, litigation is frankly sometimes necessary to deal with certain business problems and people causing them. That said, at some point almost everyone wants to negotiate a compromise and we are also nationally-accredited mediators.
All too often, insurers will take premium money quickly but be pretty slow and reluctant payers. Fire, storm, flood, theft claims are all in which we are extensively published and have very high capabilities to get client results.
Land and Leasing
For many Gold Coasters, the greatest asset is in real estate. The city is one of Australia’s fastest growing regions and we handle legal implications of land, leasing, planning and environment – with understanding of Gold Coast history and where property is going.
Sometimes it does not take much to disrupt a business’ trading performance. Following property damage, we are particularly adept in making the most for clients in areas of additional policy benefits and business interruption claims.
Building and Construction
Building management and resolving construction disputes can be detailed work. As our staff has extensive experience with onsite assessment and liability surveying, we know and solve the problems.
Following a major event such as fire, flood or storm, it makes sense to have experienced professionals manage and prepare the insurance claim. Those costs are generally covered in the commercial insurance policy, and often allowed in personal insurance contracts.
