A dominant part of our practice at Rockliffs Lawyers is representing clients in complex commercial litigation, or in other words, commercial disputes which end up in Court. This includes Partnership, Shareholder and Director disputes, or disputes over contracts and property.
Disputes might also arise out of allegations of breaches of the Corporations Act, for example, by a company director.
Over time, it’s no secret that the way in which people conduct business is evolving on a daily basis. This is why at Rockliffs we strive to keep up with not only the changes in law, but also with our constantly evolving economic climate, and the commercial world.
With the benefit of our Managing Partner, Stephen Rockliff’s successful and extensive career in commercial law spanning nearly 4 decades, and our team-based approach, you can rest assured that your commercial dispute is in the right hands.
Rockliffs act for clients on both sides of the fence. Whether it be a somebody who wants to commence proceedings or somebody who is defending a proceeding. We represent clients in Federal and New South Wales jurisdictions, namely, in the Local, District and Supreme Court of NSW and also the Federal Court and Federal Circuit Court of Australia (formerly the Federal Magistrates Court).
We pride ourselves on advocating our clients’ rights but also developing rapport and good communication with clients. At Rockliffs we recognise that each client’s situation is different and this can often guide the way in which the Court proceedings are conducted. Our staff are also very conscious of our client’s needs and the financial, emotional, personal and time heavy toll that lengthy litigation can have upon clients. Our staff also recognise the desirability of an early settlement of legal proceedings.
Our clients’ best interests are at the forefront of our practice.
Need help with a commercial dispute?
If you have a dispute or potential dispute of a legal nature, seek legal advice promptly! Often people will delay consulting with a solicitor until the dispute is well and truly alive and likely to end up in Court.
While the cost of engaging a solicitor and the presumption that you can resolve the dispute on your own are motives to delay seeking legal advice, often this results in further costs down the track, or could negatively affect the outcome of your commercial dispute.
In our experience, people often come to us seeking legal advice when their commercial dispute is inevitably going to end up in court. Often, if the client had sought legal advice earlier, legal proceedings may have been avoided.
