In this day and age, commercial disputes frequently arise from commercial transactions.

Active Law can assist you to achieve the best possible outcome for any dispute you might become involved in.

When you are faced with a commercial dispute or commercial litigation, you need the assistance of an experienced commercial litigation solicitor.


Commercial dispute resolution or commercial litigation includes any type of litigation or dispute related to a business transaction, and may include the following:

  • Body Corporate Disputes
  • Trade Practice claims/consumer claims
  • Misrepresentation claims
  • Defamation
  • Negligence claims
  • Corporate/shareholder litigation
  • Debt collections
  • Insolvency or bankruptcy


Commercial litigation can range from relatively simple disputes to highly complex matters. Most importantly, litigation that is handled improperly can lead to substantial unnecessary expense, not only the additional unnecessary expense involved in prosecuting your case, but also the added cost of needless delays, caused by work done poorly.

Litigation can have a serious impact on your business, so it is vital that you are properly advised and that you have appropriate legal assistance to help resolve your dispute as cost-effectively as possible.


With such a competitive and perhaps over–regulated construction industry, there are many instances in which a dispute may arise between a builder, developer, owner or subcontractor. Ways to resolve the dispute can sometimes be defined by the terms of the construction contract, however there are also a number of pieces of legislation which should be considered.

Like in any business, cash flow is paramount in a construction business so it is vital to ensure that any dispute is resolved as efficiently and cost effectively as possible.

We frequently act for bodies corporate, owners, builders, developers and subcontractors. We understand the difficulties each faces in trying to resolve disputes in the construction industry It is important to have proper assistance early in the dispute, to get the quickest and most reasonable outcome possible.


If your development has had unreasonably harsh conditions imposed on it, or if a proposed development in your area is likely to have a significant impact on you, speak with us about appealing the decision of the council who has imposed those conditions or allowed the development.

As matters in this court are often quite complex, and can involve evidence of a highly technical nature, it is important that you involve solicitors who are skilled with these matters.
