Examples of commercial litigation include: breach of contract, purchase and warranty claims, construction contract disputes, partnership/joint venture disputes, landlord and tenant disputes, class actions, defective products, Fair Trading Act claims, fraud and securities matters, and creditors remedies, to name just a few..

Our commercial dispute lawyers are experienced with alternative dispute resolution processes, which can ensure your dispute stays out of court. However, some disputes make court proceedings necessary. When that happens, a team from Parker & Associates will present the strongest case possible, with a view to winning judgment in your favour.
Our experience in New Zealand’s court rooms, mediation forums and negotiating tables can be of enormous benefit if you simply want good advice. We can steer you towards an intelligent decision about whether to pursue an issue or not and if so, how.
“Most litigation – and commercial litigation is no exception – ends up being resolved before a trial. Whether we’re acting for the plaintiff or the defendant side, we’re always trying to resolve the case through settlement by attempting to convince the other side to see the case your way, and creating pressure on the other side. A trial is a last resort; the stakes are typically extremely high.”
