COMMERCIAL LAW & LITIGATION
O’Connor Legal takes a practical, direct approach to the recovery process to obtain the highest outcome for clients who are owed money by others. Most debts are able to be collected without recourse to a court hearing and ensure that our clients remain in control. For those that do, however, we are well acquainted with litigation in all courts in New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland and the Federal Court of Australia. Our speciality is making the recovery of debts, no matter the size, economically viable and cost-effective. O’Connor Legal will provide ongoing support and assistance to the client throughout the dispute process to ensure the client has an ongoing understanding of their position.
We also provide assistance to clients that have been served with a bankruptcy notice. Fortunately, with our in-depth understanding of these matters both personal and commercial, we would be pleased to discuss your individual situation and explore your available options. This may allow us to reach outcome that will satisfy your creditors whilst avoiding bankruptcy. If a company owes you money, there are provisions in the Corporations Act to take that company to court to make them pay. Alternatively, if you are a company director who has been served with a wind up notice, we would be pleased to assist you in dealing with creditors and representing your company in court.
Our team has experience in handling some of Australia’s largest and most complex litigation, and regularly handles disputes in all major courts and tribunals. Contentious and challenging corporate and commercial disputes are our core business.
