Nick Revere - Twomey Dispute Lawyers (TDL) What you will notice about TDL is that you get fast, accurate advice which you can use to make commercial decisions. The advice is fast because they’ve set things up so there are no hoops between you and lawyers with answers. And the answers are accurate because their lawyers are all specialists in disputes and litigation.

Litigation is a specialist area of law because disputes are never “just” about the law. Disputes are never only about who’s right and who’s wrong. There’s strategy; there are moves to select and counter moves to anticipate.

Open for discussion will be the legal pitfalls of trademarks, Australian Consumer Law and recomedations how to best avoid litigation on credit terms and lease disputes.

Not long after graduating he was appointed as the financial controller of GSMB, where he rebuilt the firm’s operations and financial standings from being $3.5M in debt to operating with a $750k profit in the first year.
