I’m Richard Leahy. I have acted for 20 years as a litigation solicitor in commercial and insurance disputes to advance my clients’ interests at an appropriate cost.
When I set about establishing my own firm, I identified a gap in the legal market in Queensland and looked at the things that I know clients like and dislike about retaining solicitors in litigation. And the best way to keep clients and attract new business seemed obvious – commit to doing the things that clients like. I have now created my own boutique commercial litigation firm, with an emphasis on expert but commercially pragmatic service to SMEs and individuals.
Litigation can be unnecessarily complicated, expensive and stressful. It can take on “a life of its own” – with the original objectives being lost in expensive procedural detail.
Be reassured – we don’t operate like that. We have a four point commitment being:
the person you brief is the person who does your work and keeps you informed
clear, regular, and timely – so we know exactly what you want to achieve; so you understand the options; so you always know where your matter is going; and so you get no sudden and ugly surprises
so the way we charge you is clear and transparent, with no surprises, and the advice we provide is concise, practical and always directed at resolving your problem
VALUE FOR MONEY
so the goal is always resolution in the most cost effective way, and so you can optimise results against the costs of achieving them.
