Litigation

At RH Law, we understand advising clients is not simply about ‘knowing the law’. Our clients expect, and they receive, so much more than that. RH Law is able to conduct matters in all major Australian courts and tribunals and we adapt our approach to reflect the size and complexity of the dispute while constantly remaining sensitive to the commercial considerations.

As a specialist firm, we can offer a seamless, integrated legal solution for those involved in commercial litigation. Each matter is approached with a fresh perspective to ensure our clients receive the benefit of our extensive legal and broader commercial expertise in both alternative dispute resolution and any ultimate court hearing.

When required, RH Law brings together lawyers and consultants from other specialist areas to advise upon a particular aspect of your litigation.  We do this without interruption to your litigation and without unnecessarily impacting the budgeted legal spend.

We deliver intelligent, fearless and pragmatic advice to assist corporations, governments and private clients to resolve their disputes either through court-based litigation or alternative methods such as mediation and arbitration. We act in disputes between local and international parties, across multiple jurisdictions, and on public and private investigations and disputes, including where the ATO, ASIC, ASX and ACCC are involved.

Our experience includes:

  • Acting for a large financial institution in defending multiple claims brought by agents in multiple jurisdictions for misleading and deceptive conduct, breach of contract, negligent misstatement and personal injury cross-vested and heard together in the Supreme Court of New South Wales
  • Acting for franchisors defending claims relating to the Franchising Code of Conduct and misleading and deceptive conduct
