With over 60 locations throughout Australia, Slater & Gordon has one of the largest and widest networks of law offices in the country.
Our dedicated legal practice areas ensure direct access to comprehensive specialist advice and resources.
International agency and client services
Slater & Gordon provides international agency and client services in a broad range of practice areas including commercial disputes and litigation, enforcement of foreign judgments, business advisory services, holiday incident claims, asbestos law, workplace compensation, transport incidents, general compensation, medical law, family law, wills & probate.
If you have been involved in an incident whilst on holiday, travelling or working abroad you may be able to recover substantial compensation. Slater & Gordon's International Claims & Services Group advise and pursue claims for Australians involved in incidents overseas, and international visitors and tourists who have been involved in incidents whilst in Australia.
Our International Claims & Services Group is able to help with the complex issues that can arise when you have been involved in an incident, and work with a panel of international specialist compensation lawyers to make sure that in every case, you receive comprehensive and specialist advice.
Foreign Judgment Enforcement
Slater & Gordon has significant experience in enforcing foreign judgments and awards by obtaining judgments in the Australian courts, and then executing against available assets within Australia.
We are able to advise on the appropriate course of action depending on the country of the original judgment or award, and the location of recoverable assets in Australia.
We work closely with lawyers in the United Kingdom, the EU and the United States to coordinate enforcement and recovery actions and are also able to assist clients who may need to defend enforcement proceedings in Australia.
International Family Law
An increasingly global workforce has seen many Australians entering into relationships with non-Australian citizens.
Unfortunately some of these relationships breakdown, leaving the parties to try and resolve their disputes in a highly complex cross-border environment. This often involves division of assets located in different countries as well trying to determine care arrangements for children on the other side of the world.
Breakdown of marriage and other domestic partnerships is an emotional and difficult time for those involved. Add to this the complexity of trying to finalise matters in different countries and one can understand why some people but it in the “too hard basket”
The Family Law Group at Slater & Gordon has had many years of experience in handling international aspects of Family Law.
We have an excellent international network through the International Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and the Association of Conciliation Courts in America which enables Slater & Gordon to handle disputes around the globe.
