Dispute Resolution

In circumstances where matters are unable to be resolved informally, Nevett Ford has extensive experience in formal dispute resolution processes, where the team successfully balances the needs of restorative justice with the practical concerns of the organisation. 

While our aim is to resolve our client’s matters without the need for formal and costly litigation, Nevett Ford is able to assist clients in managing litigated matters in all courts within Victoria and jurisdictions across Australia. We have previously represented organisations in complex and sensitive matters including Royal Commission Hearings and State Inquiries in several jurisdictions.  

With years of collective experience, both in private practice and at the Bar, our team has extensive practice in mediations, informal settlement conferences and other forms of dispute resolution.
