LET OUR EXPERIENCED ADVOCATES RESOLVE YOUR DISPUTES

Disputes come in many different forms, so it’s important to choose the right tool for the job when it comes to resolving them. Whether through mediation, arbitration or going to court, our experienced litigation and dispute resolution team will find the best solution for you.

We deal with a wide range of disputes and litigation involving:

  • breach of contracts
  • business disputes
  • relationship property (including separation and divorce)
  • trust and estate disputes
  • debt collection, liquidation and insolvency
  • land and property
  • building and construction (including payment claims)
  • Worksafe investigations and prosecutions
  • resource management
  • criminal and traffic charges, and
  • maritime matters.

Our court lawyers and trained mediators are experienced in mediation, arbitration and in taking cases in the District Court, Family Court, High Court, Environment Court, Court of Appeal, Supreme Court and the Māori Land Court. We can also represent you before specialist tribunals (such as the Building Disputes Tribunal) as needed.

Our broad team allows us to offer the appropriate level of representation for the matter at hand, from junior solicitors to senior counsel – no need to use a sledgehammer to crack a nut! We’re also conveniently located in modern premises immediately over the road from the Whangarei High Court.

Enforcing contractual obligations and/or legal rights requires a well-articulated and reasoned approach. Our civil litigation specialists have the legal expertise and know-how to maximise leverage and tactical advantage in all areas of civil litigation.

Whether it is a complex contractual dispute, property dispute, or a straightforward debt recovery, our civil litigation team can provide practical, efficient and effective advice, achieving the best possible results via correspondence, negotiations, mediation and the District and/or High Courts.

When a company fails, or an individual fails to pay a judgment debt, the insolvency process can assist creditors in recovering some or all of the value of the debt. Our insolvency specialists provide practical advice on the most appropriate avenue of recovery, assisting with liquidation applications, bankruptcy, and creditors compromises.

Wayne McKean and his team are highly skilled and are committed to achieving the best possible outcome for our clients.

Wayne has represented clients in all Courts, including the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal.

Our client-focused approach means we work closely with you to ensure we understand your situation, and provide reassurance that we will achieve the best result in the circumstances.

Our defence team has successfully defended clients across the spectrum of offences and courts, particularly in substantial and complex cases.
