Dispute Resolution and Litigation

At Mullane & Lindsay, we understand that the best outcome to a dispute is not necessarily found in the Courts; and that the best legal outcome is not necessarily the best commercial outcome for our clients.

Our lawyers are trained to seek the best practical outcome for our clients - and one that is cost effective. We provide clear, unbiased and objective advice to assist you solve your problem or issue; and to help you stay in control. We won’t automatically suggest you take a dispute to Court. We have years of experience in Alternate Dispute Resolution processes such as mediations, arbitrations, conferencing and Expert referral. In many cases these will offer a faster, more efficient and less expensive way of addressing a dispute.  However there are times when disputes do have to be resolved by a Court, and our litigation group has the capacity and skills to manage a wide variety of matters. Our dispute services cover areas including:

  • Insurance claims*
  • Property damage and loss of profit claims
  • Professional or advisor negligence claims
  • Copyright, restraint of trade and confidential information disputes
  • Arguments over the terms of leases and contracts
  • Winding up insolvent companies
  • Debt Recovery

Our Dispute Resolution and Litigation group is headed by director Tony Cavanagh; and includes director Kristy Nunn.

Tony is or has been a member of the Australian Insurance Institute, the Australian Insurance Law Association, the Australian Lawyers Alliance and Industrial Relations Society of NSW. Tony has been a Conjoint Law Lecturer at University of Newcastle, and continues to lecture law students in relation to legal practice and risk issues on an occasional basis. He was a NSW Law Society Accredited Specialist in personal injury law from 1994 – 2013. * Changes to NSW law in 2003 prohibit the advertising of legal services for people who have suffered personal injury, except to existing clients. The only matter that we are permitted to show on our website is that Tony Cavanagh has been an accredited specialist in personal injury law. The solicitor also has to pass a detailed oral and written examination to obtain accreditation. Tony became an accredited specialist in personal injury law in 1994.

Kristy focuses on commercial and insurance litigation, and acts in professional indemnity claims against solicitors, real estate agents and other professionals. She regularly appears in court and attends at settlement conferences and mediations. Kristy has presented seminars to solicitors on risk management issues. She has also developed a practice in administrative law, and her clients have included the University of Newcastle, and other large organisations requiring the advice or representation on issues such as Freedom of Information requests and disputes; harassment or discrimination allegations; and Equal Opportunity issues.
