There’s something you’ll notice straightaway about Twomey Dispute Lawyers. We might be litigation specialists on the Gold Coast, but you won’t notice our water views. (We don’t have them). And you won’t feel lost in a boardroom suitable for a Security Council meeting. (Our meeting room seats a regular number of people.)
What you’ll notice straightaway is how fast you get what you need. There are no hoops between you and a lawyer with an answer.
We can be responsive because we’ve designed our firm to attract top-flight litigators. Litigators want to work here because we take on only disputes. That means our lawyers aren’t expected to upsell estate planning or conveyancing. So, with none of that distraction, your lawyer has time to be very, very good at the one thing we do – resolving disputes.
Like medicine, the law is broken into specialist disciplines. You wouldn’t want your heart surgeon having a red hot go at your knee reconstruction. Similarly, disputes should be handled by an accredited specialist in litigation.
Commercial litigation is a specialist area of law because disputes are never “just” about the law. They’re never only about who’s right and who’s wrong. There’s strategy; there are moves to select and counter moves to anticipate.
Our experienced litigators see the whole board. They’ll understand the hidden objectives of both sides in your dispute— the things that aren’t in the paperwork.
Are you staring down the barrel of a dispute that has — or could — turn nasty? If you are, you need a lawyer with the nuanced thinking to see 15 moves ahead. You need a lawyer with rolled-up sleeves — and the resolve to stare down whatever the other side throws at you.
That said, not all lawyers are as easy as we are to get rapid legal advice from. They might advertise a 1300 number then be as hard to catch as leprechauns. And the only place you can catch them is sitting on a fence — “On the one hand this… But on the other hand that…”
We understand you can’t get your bearings from a spinning compass. If you’re in a dispute, you need our legal advice. (Especially if the other side is talking to lawyers.)
You need a lawyer who can steer a route around or through the problem. That route should be something your lawyer can lay out in plain English. What you don’t need is a lawyer who’ll run the meter through a relaxed dissertation on the law. You’ll find we get to the point with robust advice.
In a dispute, you want to grab the phone early to a specialist lawyer. Getting expert advice early gives you the best chance of a good result.
This is true in all commercial disputes, including matters of intellectual property or defamation law, building and construction disputes, property disputes, employment law cases, estate disputes, shareholders’ disputes or a partnership disagreement.
Arming yourself with expert advice early removes the risk of shooting holes through your own case. You maintain all your options, putting you in the strongest position.
We’re the right firm for you if you’re in a commercial dispute and you need a result — whether it’s a negotiated settlement or an outright fight.
Let’s find out in a phone call if we’re a good fit for your situation. You can tell us about your matter in confidence, and we’ll tell you how we’d approach it. The call is free, and we’ll also talk openly about what your costs might be if you go ahead. No obligations. No surprises.
If we’re right for you, great. And even if we’re not, you’ll have made the first move in taking charge of your dispute.
