Round Table Conferences

Litigation in Court is always a last resort unless there is an urgent situation which requires a Court Order. We have skills and decades of experience in negotiating matters at Round Table Conferences which we can organise between solicitors who represent parties.

Round Table Conferences give both parties an opportunity “to be heard” on a confidential basis and to resolve the matter by way of discussion with their solicitors’ present. We also have facilities at our Melbourne CBD and Glenroy offices to accommodate the Round Table Conference and all parties with their legal representatives.
