Success Stories

Private Equity deal goes sour after years of trading. Complex misleading and deceptive conduct case settled before Court action necessary.

The directors sold the majority of their holding in the service company to a venture capital firm, on the understanding that the firm would develop and grow the business and substantially increase the value of the client’s remaining shares. Following the acquisition however, the service company experienced a significant drop in revenue which had the effect of devaluing the company.

Medical Fit Out claim under Security of Payment Law and major defects litigation avoided. Injunction and Supreme Court Declaration that no reference date meant Adjudication Determination was void.

The client was a medical professional who had engaged a builder to complete a commercial fit out of his new premises. The builder’s form of contract was poor. In addition, the builder had made pre-contractual representations to the effect that it had significant experience, would take care of everything and that the client didn’t need to worry about anything.

First home buyers gets the better of builder involved in house and land package promotion. Misrepresentations and hand amendment to building contract lead to substantial cost saving.

The clients were looking at new house and land packages with the view to purchase for their own residence. They met with a selling agent for a project home builder who showed them a site within a new subdivision and provided a promotional brochure showing a split level home that they were told could be built on the site for a cost of $230,000.00. The vacant land was for sale by the project home builder for $160,000.00.

Not only were they timely, professional, no-nonsense, they were quick to nip things in the bud that could have resulted in very costly meandering by the other party!

“Having a commercial dispute is stressful and never an ideal situation. But knowing you are in safe pair of hands, can alleviate the worry.

After a false start with a different firm, I was recommended Roberts Legal’s Commercial Law team. Right from the very first phone call, I knew that I had the right team on my side. Not only were they timely, professional, no-nonsense, they were quick to nip things in the bud that could have resulted in very costly meandering by the other party!

In addition, I felt appropriately informed every step of the way. I knew I could leave Roberts Legal to do what they do best (resolve the dispute). All I needed to do was sleep soundly at night and focus on my own business.

Thanks in particular to Tasha who went beyond the call of duty to keep me informed – even when I was out of the country for work.

Roberts Legal are highly recommended!”
