At PCL Lawyers, our savvy commercial litigation lawyers in Sydney understand the commercial realities our client’s face across a range of industries. We will fight hard for your best interests, yet intelligent and well thought through way.
We believe that every dispute needs a strategy or a case plan. It becomes the guide during the dispute. It means that we begin with the end in mind and stay focused on the outcome.

Our commercial litigation lawyers will consider all potential solutions and how they will impact you commercially.

PCL Lawyers is committed to providing:
Our initial advice is comprehensive, so you understand the merits of your case. It is imperative that your position is articulated clearly to you prior to initiating any formal court proceedings. Court proceedings require planning and careful consideration to ensure your position is framed correctly and the claim or counter-claim is robust.
From the outset, correspondence and negotiations with the other parties need to be framed correctly to achieve an effective resolution in the fastest time.
Our litigation lawyers in Sydney are skilled in mediation and this is a useful tool in resolving disputes. It is important to have a skilled litigator who can not only seek a resolution but prepare settlement deeds quickly and thoroughly thought through. There can be several attempts at mediation before a trial commences.
There are also other alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods and strategies such as “calderbank” offers and “offers of compromise” that can be used in litigation to motivate the other party to settle.
Prior to a trial (or final hearing), a formal mediation before a mediator is compulsory. This gives each party a real chance to reach a satisfactory resolution.
The last mediation before trial is a time when the issues of a matter are articulated properly, particularly because by this time discovery of documents has been made by each party. By this time both parties have had the opportunity to obtain extensive legal advice.
The strengths and weaknesses of each side’s case typically become more evident; therefore, many cases resolve at mediation. The objective of mediation is for the parties to reach an agreement. This is documented by a litigation lawyer either at mediation or shortly thereafter in a settlement deed. This takes considerable skill of a litigation lawyer to draft a legally binding document that considers all defines the obligations of each of the parties.
If the parties are just “too far apart” and the matter cannot be resolved at mediation, each party then prepares for trial and the matter is decided by the relevant court or tribunal.
Going to trial or a hearing can be a daunting and disruptive process for businesses and individuals. It can also be an expensive process. Courts or tribunals are essential and even during a trial or hearing, a resolution can be negotiated.
Parties may need to go to court to enforce their rights or position. This said we look to resolve disputes quickly and effectively to minimise the impact of the dispute on your business either before court proceedings commence or during proceedings.
If you have been served with a claim or a writ, you will need to take immediate action to defend your position.
Our experienced commercial litigation lawyer in Sydney can prepare the necessary court documents and prepare your case more broadly. Cases often involve the appointing of barristers and gathering evidence and expert reports to substantiate and defend your legal position.
It is important that this is carefully considered from the outset. It is crucial that claims and counterclaims are carefully drafted as trying to amend these later on in the matter, or trying to change jurisdiction, can be costly or may diminish your legal position.
Our experienced litigation lawyers in Sydney have extensive skill in preparing and strategizing on legal matters and cases. They understand how to consider, draft and present legal documents.
Not all lawyers are competent in litigation or court-based proceedings as it takes considerable exposure and ability. Our commercial litigation team understands the various court rules and time frames that impact your matter.
