Litigation & Dispute Resolution
Thornburgh Lawyers has a wealth of successful corporate recovery & dispute resolution and litigation experience in Vanuatu.
The Principal of Thornburgh Lawyers has a formidable reputation built up over a period of many years both in Vanuatu and in the State and Federal Courts and Tribunals in Australia.
Our litigation and dispute resolution team is able to advise you on legal disputes and the legal mechanisms available for a successful resolution.
We believe that disputes are often won or lost on the depth, accuracy and forensic skills of litigation lawyers. Should your matter proceed to litigation, you can be assured that a hard-working and dedicated team of lawyers will be protecting your interests from every angle.
Our litigation skills and expertise are in commercial, corporate and business law, property and all civil litigation areas.
Our clients benefit from practical advice on commercial issues.
