Dispute Resolution

Our large and experienced team of dispute resolution lawyers are exceptional strategists, who always stay focused on the big picture, and are experts at balancing commercial realities with legal entitlements.

We will always use the most strategic and decisive approach, rather than just plodding the traditional path of litigation, to help you achieve your goals. We have an extensive record of settling disputes quickly with a minimum of cost.

We are committed to listening carefully to your objectives and collaborating with your own expert advisers, or new experts we introduce to you, to formulate the best plan to protect your interests and allow you to move past the dispute.

We know Canberra like no other firm. We will be able to connect you with the best team of experts, have frank yet collaborative discussions with our opponents, and navigate our courts and regulatory systems with insight that goes beyond mere knowledge of the law.

By combining our people skills and key connections with a big picture perspective, we do what we can to get you the best outcome as quickly as possible so you can move forward.

The MV difference

When you work with MV Law, we truly listen. We take the time to get to know you and the path that has brought you into a dispute, so we can work with you to navigate past it.  Of course we love to win, but we also know that winning looks different for every case.  Our objective is to tailor the solution so that it fits your problem, and keeps you in control of the outcome.
