Commercial Litigation

At Mann Lawyers, our commercial litigators are skilled and experienced advocates who recognize that business disputes require a business-minded approach.  

We provide clear and practical advice, with sensible strategies to achieve successful resolutions for our clients.

Many disputes can be resolved without the need for a court process or trial.  Wherever possible we use our significant alternative dispute resolution (ADR) proficiency to attain efficient and favourable settlements.  Where a negotiated settlement is not practical, we are ever-ready to deploy our extensive and respected courtroom expertise on your behalf. 

We take our service commitment seriously.

As our client, you will always know where you stand (chances of success, strategies, timing of next steps, anticipated costs, etc.)  This ensures that you can make informed decisions and you are never caught off guard.  We communicate; we are responsive; and we understand that we are in the business of supporting your business.

We never lose sight of the big picture.

We recognize that our strategies and actions have the potential to impact your business interests, not just your legal interests.  We are alert to the risks and opportunities that accompany commercial disputes, and we will identify them for you.  In other words, it is not just about the law.

Our commercial litigation team has experience in a broad range of commercial disputes, including:

• contract disputes
• director and officer liability claims
• shareholder, partnership and corporate governance disputes
• oppression and derivative claims
public procurement and tendering disputes
franchise disputes
distribution, supplier, licensing and other contractual disputes
construction disputes, including construction liens
fraud recovery
