W Advisers' lawyers have been key advisers during many significant Australian disputes and regulatory investigations. 

The James Hardie dispute about its multibillion dollar asbestos shortfall and the >40 year funding deal that resolved it.  The ABC Learning collapse and the ASIC investigations that followed.  The Allco Finance Group collapse and various related proceedings.  High profile disputes involving public figures, listed and unlisted companies and business founders.  

Our lawyers seek to make a significant, commercial and positive contribution to resolving the issues, including through narrowing the dispute to the real issues between the parties.  

We bring a unique commercial perspective to commercial disputes.  All our dispute resolution lawyers undertake M&A work, and vice versa, so they are familiar with driving a matter toward reaching a suitable resolution.  

Sometimes a Court judgement is the only realistic resolution.   Unfortunately, lawyers can sometimes entrench rather than progress the resolution of disputes. 

Our relentless focus is on exploring a commercial resolution to any dispute - or if it cannot be resolved, running the litigation to seek to deliver the just, quick and cheap resolution of the dispute.  

A list of matters which we have run to judgement is available on request.
