Rural litigation and dispute resolution

 Litigation can arise from a simple misunderstanding or from intentional wrongdoing, and in all cases, the path of litigation is long and arduous and requires a reliable guide. Our rural law team litigators take special care to explain the process and the likely costs involved, and the prospects of success so that you can make a fully informed decision so that you are in control in the driver’s seat, and you don’t feel like a passenger being taken for a ride.

We are able to assess the facts that you provide to determine your legal remedies for contract disputes, misrepresentation or fraud, warranty breaches, negligence or other causes of action.

More technical disputes require special knowledge and our rural law team are able to offer representation in those specialised areas including:

  • Contaminated soil claims
  • Contaminated soil claims
  • Contaminated stock feed claims
  • Defective agricultural machinery claims
  • Negligence for Stock losses
  • Bush fire and occupiers liability insurance claims.
  • Negligence and other insurance claims
  • Claims for defective chemicals or other products
