Business Disputes

Engaged, Innovative and Resourceful

BTLawyers has an unwavering commitment to protecting and adding value to our clients’ businesses. Our select clientele includes some of Australia’s leading corporations in transport and logistics, manufacturing, property, retail, health and aged care, financial services and insurance.

About

BTLawyers was designed to be different – to deliver a service that provides genuine value that the traditional law firm model cannot. We invest time to develop a thorough understanding of our clients’ businesses and the environments in which they operate. We create enduring relationships with our clients, supporting and protecting their business, vision and values.

Our service provides a proven alternative to the “traditional” law firm.  We have removed the recognised inefficiencies that impede the delivery of quality services and value.

We provide:

  • A flat structure providing direct access to expert lawyers.
  • A strategic approach to dispute resolution that delivers commercially relevant advice and outcomes.
  • Value-based fee structures that focus on effective and efficient service rather than process and procedure.
  • Focus on building relationships and adding value that supports our clients.

Our Approach

Our clients are actively involved throughout the planning and risk assessment stages of their disputes. Once engaged, we will quickly evaluate the issues and provide clear commercial advice on how to approach the dispute in the client’s best interest. Working with our clients, we focus on identifying their commercial objectives at an early stage and develop a strategy to achieve them. This ensures realistic goals are set and the best commercial outcomes are achieved.

We make full use of all available mechanisms to achieve a successful dispute resolution. These include the use of alternative dispute resolution processes – such as direct negotiation, mediation, expert determination and arbitration. We proactively pursue the agreed strategy keeping our clients fully informed with clear and concise reports as the matter progresses. While a trial is rarely the preferred resolution mechanism, if the alternative dispute resolution avenues fail we will vigorously pursue and protect our client’s rights and interests with a fully prepared and resourced case. Whichever resolution course is followed, we are committed to the protection of our client’s commercial interests.
