Debt recovery, insolvency & bankruptcy

We look after a large number of debt recovery files through each stage of the debt collection process including issuing demands, instituting court proceedings, appearing in court, and enforcing court judgments. Enforcement proceedings include bankruptcy, winding up applications and enforcement warrants for the sale and seizure of property. 

Defamation & reputation management

We provide urgent advice about how to remove defamatory comments and repair any damage which has been done to our client’s reputation. Social media defamation matters are also on the rise with tweets and Facebook posts far more reaching than ever before. We assist with the immediate aftermath of a defamatory post to minimise losses and seek to reach early restitution. If necessary, we also provide court representation through to trial.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY PROTECTION

We take action to prevent the infringement or continuing infringement of our client’s intellectual property. We obtain compensation on behalf of our client and declarations from the court in relation to the validity of intellectual property. We also assist in preventing the disclosure of our client’s confidential information and trade secrets to another party and commencing litigation as required to seek compensation and prevent further breaches.
