Commercial Litigation Done the Right Way
No business owner wants to face a lawsuit. It’s stressful and disruptive to day-to-day operations. And then comes a day when you need to launch litigation action to protect your business.
We’ve been practicing law long enough to know that commercial litigation can drag on for a long time and cause disputing parties a lot of stress.
In our experience, one of the best approaches to find a resolution in a commercial dispute is to start the process as soon as it is clear all other avenues to resolve a dispute have been exhausted.
Rouse Lawyers works in commercial and business law exclusively. Because of our focus on business and commerce, we’re in a position to deliver legal solutions for our clients by business-savvy lawyers skilled in commercial litigation.
To minimise stress and bring some order to what often becomes a chaotic legal situation, our lawyers communicate transparently and openly with clients, laying out before you every step and advantage of a strategy we propose to adapt.
You, the client, are always in control and have the last say at every turn.
Why Rouse Lawyers?
Unlike many commercial law firms who still live in the 1990s, we won’t try to book you in for so-called initial consultation and charge you $400+ an hour for it.
That’s not how we practice law.
We don’t mind having a chat with you over the phone to find out what the issue is you’re trying to solve. If we can help, we’ll tell you what we can do for you and often give you a ballpark figure of the cost involved.
If you’re interested, we’ll invite you for in-depth, no obligation, free consultation at our office to understand in detail your situation and give you an accurate cost estimate.
We set ourselves apart from the pack by offering our clients a strict No Surprises Fee Policy. What it means in practice is – you’ll never be charged anything you didn’t expect to be charged when we gave you a quote. Period.
We stick to our end of the deal every time.
We’re not large in numbers but what we’ve got at our disposal are some of the best legal minds around.
Give us a call to find out what we mean.
With Rouse Lawyers, you’re dealing with professionals who value each client and our own reputation. We simply can not afford, from the business point of view, to cut corners when we serve our clients no matter how profitable it might be for others.
When we say “we’ll look after you” – we mean it.
