Slater & Gordon is Australia’s leading law firm providing advice and dispute resolution services to everyday Australians. Our track record of securing just outcomes including the recovery of compensation for individuals and groups of affected clients is second to none.
We have substantial experience acting in a wide range of disputes affecting everyday Australians: many involving property, failed investments or misleading professional advice.
Often, our clients face very well resourced opponents. We have the capacity, competence and confidence to level the playing field confronting our clients.
While we offer our services at very competitive prices, litigation can be costly and funding litigation can be challenging. Like any business, we expect to be fairly paid for our work. To assist our clients, we offer access to a range of innovative and flexible litigation funding solutions which may suit our client’s matter and circumstances.
We also have the ability to effectively bring groups of clients together to share resources and intelligence, reducing the cost for individuals.
