Insurance & Dispute Resolution

Litigation is driven by timetables, imposed by procedural rules, judicial orders and, not least, client imperatives.  A firm cannot effectively maintain a litigation practice as diverse as ours unless it has the experience and depth to meet those time constraints with quality, cost-efficient responses.  Our general litigation practice continues to grow, reflecting our ability to meet new challenges presented by this practice area in the 21st century.

We’re proud of the fact King & Company have been on the panel of providers to the Queensland Local Government Mutual Insurance Pool since its inception more than a quarter of a century ago.  Our expertise in handling public liability and professional indemnity claims against local governments has resulted in our appointment for provision of like services to insurer and superannuation trustee clients, including in other specialist insurance lines, such as life and TPD insurance.  We act in partnership with our clients to provide cost-effective and practical quality outcomes.

Administrative appeals (including judicial reviews) are another significant feature of our local government litigation practice, as is rates and debt recovery (including the sale of land for overdue rates), and proceedings involving building or construction disputes involving a range of contracts and agreements across the full gamut of projects and infrastructure.

Works (design and construction) contracts regularly generate a wide variety of disputes and, when those disputes arise, we’re geared to conduct proceedings to resolve them for our local government and other institutional clients.

We have an expanding practice in defamation, human rights and anti-discrimination.

Our practitioners are highly experienced litigators with a detailed understanding of substantive law and civil procedure.  We pride ourselves on our ability to advocate vigorously for our clients as part of the overall service we provide as expert litigators.
