Australian Practice to End

As of 30 June 2016, we will no longer be practicing as solicitors in Australia. This is because our personnel are moving on to some exciting new commercial ventures. 

However, we will continue our practice in New Zealand, where all contact details will remain the same and where we will offer the following legal services...

International Arbitration

International Arbitration is a highly complex global minefield, which requires specialised credentials, worldwide contacts, finger-tip familiarity with institutional rules and international law, and expert strategy.

... Stapleton Solicitors will fix your problems with people or companies in other countries...

Are you doing business with someone in another country? Are you trading with a foreign company? Have you set up a business in another country?

If you answered ‘Yes’ to any of these questions, then how would you recover your money or goods if there is a problem and your money or goods are located in another country?

Consider some simple examples.

  • You have a contract with a manufacturer in another country. You pay for a shipment of goods, but the manufacturer does not send them. What do you do?
  • You sell some merchandise that you have been storing in another country. You ship the merchandise, but the buyer does not pay. What do you do?
  • You provide professional services to a foreign company. You render an account, but your customer does not pay you. What do you do?

The most effective and most recognised world-wide process for recovering your money or goods within another jurisdiction is International Commercial Arbitration.

Subject to limited reservations, the courts of 145 different countries will recognise and enforce your arbitral ward.

Stapleton Solicitors specialise in international commercial arbitration.

Whichever country you are from, are domiciled in, are incorporated in or have commercial interests in, we can simplify and lead you through the incredibly complex process of international commercial arbitration... from beginning to end, from drafting arbitration agreements to enforcement of arbitral awards.
