Disputes & Litigation

We specialise in the below litigation areas.

Civil Litigation

Civil litigation refers to matters outside the sphere of criminal proceedings. Civil litigation can be between private individuals, companies, or other legal entities. Typically, there is a monetary claim involved or court order being sought.

Civil litigation can be a stressful and expensive process, especially if court proceedings are involved. With strategic advice and good judgement, you can resolve your civil matter without court intervention.

There are several ways in which a civil matter can be handled.  Every civil matter is different.  So, determining an appropriate first step is key in any successful litigation strategy.

Regardless of the avenue being pursued in your civil litigation case, our team of specialised lawyers can advise on the most suitable course of action to achieve your desired outcome.

Property & Real Estate Litigation

Many civil litigation cases involve disputes over property or real estate deals.

If you are facing an issue with a property deal of any kind, and it seems that litigation is the only option to resolve the issue, our services can assist you.

We will review the matter to determine the best course of action to secure your interests.

In circumstances where your case is escalated, our services will ensure you are directly involved and informed every step of the way.

Business & Commercial Litigation

If you are facing a business dispute, sometimes the only way to resolve it is through litigation.

If you are a private individual experiencing a dispute with a commercial entity, or you are the business facing a dispute against an individual, we can help you.

I HIGHLY recommend Evolution Lawyers. Having owned property for many years with two of my best mates it came time to sell. Evolution Lawyers guided us through our first ever sale to a third party. They also helped us through the process of property sales between friends and subsequently helped me personally with the purchase of my own home. With the complex situation of winding up our little property company and the (supposed) need for me to get bridging finance to get it all done, it was Thomas who, on a hunch, went the extra mile by reaching out to an accountant friend to discover and inform us that there was a way to wind the company up without the need for bridging finance. This saved me personally $15,000 - $20,000 by not needing the bridging finance. I cannot be more grateful for this on top of the already professional and exceptional service. Great work by Thomas, George and all the team. Highly recommend!

My family recently had the pleasure of working with Evolution Lawyers for the refinance of their mortgage, and we cannot praise them enough for their exceptional service and professionalism throughout the entire process. From the very first interaction, it was evident that Evolution Lawyers truly cares about their clients. Their team was friendly and approachable. The documentation process was streamlined and hassle-free, thanks to the efficiency and expertise of the Evolution Lawyers team. They guided us step-by-step through gathering and organizing the necessary documents, making sure that nothing was overlooked. Their attention to detail and thoroughness gave us confidence that everything was handled meticulously. I highly recommend Evolution Lawyers to anyone seeking assistance with mortgage refinance or any legal matters related to real estate. Their exceptional service, professionalism, and dedication to their clients set them apart. Thanks to their support, the mortgage refinance was a stress-free and positive experience. We are truly grateful for their guidance and would not hesitate to engage their services again in the future.
