Hendersons Legal, Melbourne lawyers, brings 30 years of legal experience in commercial litigation, disputes and debt recovery to provide practical legal advice on these matters to our corporate, small business and personal clients.

Our commercial litigation lawyers make it a priority to take detailed instructions and get hold of all relevant documents as early as possible in the process so that we can give our clients clear, practical and cost-effective legal advice about their commercial litigation concerns.

Whilst we all want to win every time, it is important to assess the strengths of every case from the beginning. Some clients have a very strong position; others are weak. Our commercial litigation lawyers work with all of our clients to ensure that there is a clear understanding by us and our clients of their expectations and desired outcomes. It is critical that these are established at the beginning and frequently reviewed during the litigation process.  Commercial litigation is expensive and the results cannot be guaranteed. With Hendersons Legal you will have the peace of mind of dealing directly with commercial litigation and dispute lawyers with many years of experience who can provide practical legal advice and guide our clients through this significant process.

Based as we are in the Melbourne CPD, our commercial litigation and dispute lawyers have experience in all of the Victorian and Melbourne jurisdictions including the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT), the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court (and other regional courts), the Victorian County Court,  the Victorian Supreme Court as well as the Federal Court.

Our commercial litigation and dispute matters range from small debt collection matters to large scale complex commercial matters between corporations. More specifically, Hendersons Legal has provided commercial litigation and dispute advice and services in relation to:

  • contract disputes across a range of industries
  • breach of contract claims
  • debt and property recovery proceedings
  • trade practices and the Australian Consumer law
  • misrepresentation

Debt Recovery

Hendersons Legal provides a fast and efficient legal service for demanding and collecting unpaid debts including letters of demand; issuing court proceedings; winding up; bankruptcy; and obtaining judgements. All of our commercial litigation and dispute lawyers have excellent negotiation skills and work with clients to devise strategies to achieve sound commercial outcomes.

Alternative Dispute Resolution

Some of our clients seek dispute resolution by mediation or arbitration. To this end, we offer a range of services including reviewing and advising on alternative dispute resolution provisions; appointing appropriate mediators or arbitrators; representing clients at mediations and arbitrations; and negotiating settlements for clients as well as all other relevant documentation including releases. Again, we strive at all times to promote our client’s interests whilst seeking commercially acceptable outcomes to their legal disputes.
