We Are Here To Serve You
Civil Litigation is the term used to encompass the laws, rules, procedures and practices governing the determination and enforcement of legal rights and liabilities through the courts. If you are seeking to enforce your legal rights by suing another party or, if an action has commenced against you, it is imperative you get strategic advice to understand your legal position and options.
Strategic Lawyers are able to draw on specialised and varied legal skill sets. We offer an expert Civil Litigation service that caters to corporate needs as well as individual clients.
We recognise the commercial element associated with all litigation and adopt a strategic approach governed by the philosophy: “what is good for the client?” This allows us to strategise the issues and tailor a personalised service to achieve the best outcomes for you. We understand litigation is expensive and stressful so we plan to achieve your desired outcome in the most economical manner and, more importantly, with as little stress as possible.
Our solicitors are very proactive and will work hard to ensure you are fully informed throughout all stages in the litigation process. In doing so, we’ll guide you through some of the more important aspects and the possible consequences that you should be aware of, including:
- The process of starting an action in the State or Federal Courts,
- How to respond to an action commenced against you,
- Whether alternatives exist to resolve the matter outside of the courts,
- How an opposing party may be restricted from undertaking certain acts,
- How costs are calculated and, where possible, how they can be reduced,
- How time constraints are calculated and their impact on limitation periods,
- How evidence can be obtained from the opposing party,
- Your responsibilities when it comes to providing evidence to support your claims,
- The effect formal offers to settle may have on your position,
- Whether expert opinion and advocacy is required from a Barrister-at-Law, and
- How your Court Orders can be enforced.
Litigation is complex and requires expert legal advice and support. Time is often of the essence so if you’re seeking to enforce your rights or if an action has been commenced against you, do not hesitate to call to arrange a meeting with one of our solicitors. Through our fixed price service, we will provide you with a written quote for each step in the process. This way you will never be surprised with an astronomical legal bill at the end of the proceeding.

Why Are We The Best?
Never again will you be worried about a 20 second phone call or two sentence email costing you an arm and a leg. We actually encourage you to keep us informed about developments and changes to the situation, as often these are important details and need to be included in our correspondence or case.
Our philosophy is that often the best way to resolve your issue is away from the financial and emotional stress of Court. Our views are reflected in the following quote from Abraham Lincoln:
“Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbours to compromise when you can. As a peacemaker the lawyer has superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough.”
Here at Strategic Lawyers, we are not afraid to do away with archaic traditions in favour of creative and futuristic solutions. Our service extends far beyond legislative compliance as we are able to work closely with you and all who are involved in the matter, whether it is your family, accountant, consultant, financial advisor or doctor.
Here at Strategic Lawyers, we believe in doing what is best for you. We apply this principle to every aspect of our business, including our customer service, advice and pricing structure.
We know that every personal and business situation is different so we make it our business to understand what has happened and how we can best help you. We don’t categorise you and decide which precedent document best suits you, but instead accept that you are unique and think creatively about how we can customise our advice to suit.
We have a team of lawyers who excel in every aspect of the law, including property law, commercial law, intellectual property, family law, banking and finance law, immigration law, wills and estates, criminal law and litigation. Our use of lawyers, consultants and barristers, gives you access to a wealth of knowledge that is not possessed by the inexperienced, in-house generalists who would be running the case if it was done through another firm. Â
Our adoption of a fixed-fee method of quoting and payments means that you will get value for money. You do not need to be concerned about calling or emailing us because all of our communication with you is included. This means we are able to provide a high level of customer service and build a working relationship that will result in us being able to better understand the situation and provide a custom solution.
Strategic Lawyers is dedicated to achieving the best possible outcome for you, in a timely manner and at an affordable price.
