Litigation and Crime

  • Our Litigation and Criminal team have more than thirty (30) years of combined experience. Aughtersons represents individual clients, small businesses and large corporate clients in the State Courts and Tribunals of Victoria. Aughtersons also represents clients who have been charged with both summary and indictable criminal offences.

    In relation to litigious matters we are conscious of our Overarching Obligations to the Court and pride ourselves in being able to identify the strengths and weaknesses of your matter, provide comprehensive advice at the outset as to what those strengths and weaknesses are and keep you fully informed during the conduct of your proceeding.

    Our Litigation services include representing clients in contractual disputes, claims in negligence, family and business disputes, contractual breaches relating to the sale & purchase of land, debt recovery proceedings and commercial leasing disputes.

    In criminal matters we represent our clients in relation to contested hearings and pleas in mitigation for summary offences and indictable offences which can be determined by the Magistrates Court. We also represent clients in serious indictable matters in committal proceedings and pleas in mitigation and trials in the County and Supreme Courts of Victoria.

    We also provide representation to both Applicants and Respondents in relation to intervention orders in the Magistrates Court of Victoria.
