Litigation and Dispute Resolution


Litigation and Dispute Resolution

Advocate Lawyers was created out of a desire to assist clients through the litigation and dispute resolution process. As experienced court lawyers, we can assist with any part of the process including:

  • Representation for clients involved in court actions;
  • Representation during mediation or alternate dispute resolution processes;
  • Attempted resolution of early disputes; and
  • Mediation of disputes, where you need a mediator.

We are experienced litigation lawyers working across Tribunals and Courts in Tasmania. We can appear as your representative in the Magistrates Court, Supreme Court, Federal Circuit & Family Court of Australia and the Tasmanian Civil & Administrative Tribunal (TASCAT).

What is litigation?

Litigation is the process of taking legal action. When we say “litigation” we mean any action in a Court.

Advocate Lawyers specialise in civil litigation and dispute resolution. If you are involved in a dispute, whether in or out of Court, we can assist you.

While we represent clients in court and mediations, we also assist with resolving disputes at an early stage where appropriate through negotiation with the other party.

Our principal, Kelly Dewey, trained as a Mediator and can also assist by providing mediation services where she is not representing the parties who are part of the dispute.
