As Gold Coast civil litigation lawyers, the professional staff at QBM Lawyers are familiar with the civil litigation that comes out of the fluctuations in the local economy. While the property market improves, there are many disputes with people attempting to purchase a property and development sites, as well as related development litigation such as building disputes and claims for negligence or breach of contract against service providers.
As the local economy contracts and property prices fall, there are many disputes with parties attempting to extricate themselves from contracts and future obligations.
Understanding these cycles through involvement in that litigation and in particular contract litigation, our gold coast civil litigation lawyers and our commercial lawyers provide effective guidance designed to protect against future contingencies, and are familiar with the usual triggers to allow the ending of long term contracts.
Commonly these fluctuations give rise to increases in:
- mortgage and security litigation;
- building litigation;
- property litigation and in partiuclar contract litigation;
- misleading conduct claims;
- body corporate litigation;
- employment litigation.
The strength of QBM Lawyers in commercial and business law is also of benefit in the conduct of litigation in the provision of knowledge and resources to the litigation and familiarity with commercial and business structures. This is an advantage in quickly coming to understand the essence of the dispute, what rights and remedies the parties might have, and a means of resolution of the issue. After all, there are vastly different means of litigating and resolving claims depending on the structure involved. A dispute between shareholders may be dealt with through proceedings for oppression, whereas a similar dispute under a partnership or trust arrangement having the same effect would have to be dealt with in an entirely different manner.
