Negotiating with the other party

A lot of the work that civil lawyers do occurs out of court. While in some cases, litigating may be unavoidable, it is usually preferable to reach an agreement with the other party and avoid the time and expense involved in going to court.

Our talented civil lawyers will analyse your situation and identify opportunities to resolve the dispute out of court. They will negotiate with the other party where appropriate to do so, to achieve the best possible outcome.

Mediation

Commencing proceedings isn’t always the best way to proceed but some matters can’t be resolved simply through discussions between the parties or their lawyers.

Go To Court’s civil lawyers are experienced in mediation and conciliation and can use these forms of alternative dispute resolution to assist you to achieve a quick and cost-effective outcome, where possible.

Jurisdiction

If it’s not possible to resolve your matter out of court, it is important to determine which court or tribunal it should be heard in. Each state has different jurisdictions and different rules as to which forum a matter should be filed in. Factors that affect where an application should be filed include the amount of money involved and the geographical location where the cause of action arose. Our Australia-wide network of civil lawyers can help you determine the best way forward.

Limitation periods

There are different limitation periods for taking different types of civil action. Some types of action have a lengthy limitation period, while in others (such as employment matters), you are allowed less than a month to initiate proceedings.

Go To Court’s civil lawyers will ensure that applications and responses are filed in time and ensure all deadlines set by the court are met.

Litigation

If the matter that you are involved in cannot be finalised through negotiations, you may need to initiate court proceedings. Our lawyers will prepare your matter thoroughly by issuing subpoenas, providing disclosure and analysing all material disclosed by the other party.

Our team of civil lawyers is experienced in representing clients in courts and tribunals and will advocate strongly for you or your company. They will fight for the outcome you want and never lose sight of what you want to achieve.
