Our firm has many years experience acting for both sides in commercial litigation matters. We have long-standing associations with many businesses on the Fraser Coast and in Brisbane for whom we have acted for over many years. Our clients continue to benefit from the quality litigation services we provide at competitive rates.
Carswell & Company provides debt collection legal services for a range of companies, particularly in the construction and property industries. We have successfully recovered up to multi-million dollar debts in these types of matters.
One of the most important remedies available to builders and contractors are Subcontractors Charges under the Building Construction Industry Payment Act. This allows subcontractors to recoup monies from principals and employers "up the chain" if a superior contractor fails to pay them or becomes insolvent. The advantage of a Charge is that it privileges a subcontractor as a secured creditor giving them priority over claims of unsecured creditors. It also allows them to seek immediate judgment against the non-paying party.
Carswell & Company has significant experience in assisting directors of companies with corporate insolvency and litigation matters. We can assist directors and shareholders with the preparation of informal agreements and plans for restructuring, as well as through the external administration process.
Our years of experience in acting for corporate clients in all aspects of their businesses gives our team the business efficacy and problem solving skills to apply to our clients' commercial litigation matters.
