Duncan has many years experience practising as a litigation solicitor in Australia and New Zealand.
He brings a broad experience to Belbridge Hague including general contractual disputes, debt recovery, domestic and commercial building disputes, sales of goods, negligence claims, real property disputes, Corporations securities and insolvency disputes and equitable claims.
Duncan is also able to act in industrial relations, environmental and administrative law matters.
Litigation solicitors recognise that they practice in an area of the law where things are not all “beer and skittles” and the cost in time and resources will mean that for some, the full Court hearing process is unrealistic. Duncan looks to discuss and manage expectations where appropriate, so that both lawyer and client are on the same page as to options, outcome and cost.
Duncan’s rural background in New Zealand provides him with a good insight into issues arising from disputes in the agribusiness sector.
