Brisbane Commercial litigation and disputes
Our lawyers focus on commercial litigation and resolving commercial disputes.
It is our policy to try to resolve commercial disputes without resorting to litigation. If the dispute cannot be resolved in this way then we can advise and assist clients with legal recourse to the Brisbane Courts.
Debt recovery and legal debt collection
Stonegate Legal have a particular focus on legal debt recovery and legal debt collection.
From attempting to negotiate with the other party, letters of demand and ADR through to filing Court proceedings and enforcement of money orders.
Our debt recovery experts can advise and assist at every step of the debt recovery process.
Brisbane Building and construction disputes
Our Brisbane lawyers offer advice and assistance with building and construction disputes.
Unpaid payment claims, subcontractor’s charges, adjudication applications and Court proceedings.
Our construction lawyers can assist in all building and construction matters.
Letters of demand for unpaid commercial invoices
We offer fixed-fee letters of demand for unpaid invoices.
If you are involved in a commercial debt dispute, then our fixed fees offer some certainty when it comes to legal services.
Enforcing judgments or money orders
When we successfully obtain a judgment or enforceable money order from the Court, it will likely need to be enforced.
We can provide advice and assistance with all enforcement action including enforcement hearings, enforcement warrants, instalment orders, issuing statutory demands, and bankruptcy notices.
Registering and enforcing QCAT decisions
A QCAT decision is not enforceable until it is registered in the Court with jurisdiction.
Once registered, a QCAT decision can be enforced as if it were a judgment of that Court.
We can then provide advice and assistance in enforcing the registered QCAT decision in the Court.
Drafting and serving creditor’s statutory demands
A statutory demand is a demand for money made on a company.
If the company does not comply with the statutory demand within 21 days, it is presumed to be insolvent.
With the presumption of insolvency assisting, a creditor can apply to wind the debtor company up in insolvency.
Applications to set aside statutory demands
If a company has been served with a statutory demand then a debtor company can apply to set the demand aside.
If there is a genuine dispute, off setting claim, defect in the demand, or a procedural issue, then the demand will likely be set aside.
An issuing creditor may also withdraw the demand if sufficient grounds are presented to it.
Making and defending winding up applications
Our Brisbane lawyers can provide advice and assistance with making winding up applications if a debtor company has not complied with the statutory demand.
We can also help clients apply to set aside a winding up application, if for example the company is not insolvent.
All personal insolvency and bankruptcy matters
Stonegate Legal advise and assist with all bankruptcy matters, including issuing bankruptcy notices and creditor’s petitions.
We also work with debtors with personal insolvency matters such as Part IX debt agreements and Part X insolvency agreements.
We work with trustees, and against trustees in bankruptcy matters like bankruptcy annulment or voidable transactions.
Drafting credit applications and contracts
We can also draft all credit applications, loan agreements, security agreements, and contracts.
