Dispute Resolution 

Also known as Civil Litigation, Dispute Resolution is at the heart of Sewell Law's practice and the experience gained from dealing with a large variety of different cases over the years has enabled our lawyers to become adept in several areas of law.  


We fully understand the stress, anxiety, inconvenience and cost of litigation which is why our preference is to reach the best possible outcome without going to Court. We are recognised for going the extra mile and we pride ourselves on pragmatism, commercial awareness and expertise. These attributes go a long way to achieving the best result.
