Litigation Lawyers in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth 

Canaan Lawyers is predominantly a litigation law firm. More than 60% of our work are litigious in nature.

We differentiate ourselves from other law firms in these aspects:

FIXED FEE

We always offer a fixed fee for every stage of the process rather than charging by the hour. Based on our vast experience, we are able to clearly define the scope of work for each stage and will never charge our clients more than what we have quoted. We can offer our clients a piece of mind in terms of legal costs. Our clients can completely trust us and not worry or question whether we are doing our work quick enough since we do not charge hourly. Dragging on the matter does not benefit us at all and thus we understand our clients’ desire to reach a result promptly.

FOCUSED ON ACHIEVING CLIENTS’ DESIRED OUTCOMES

We always listen to our clients carefully and define their desired outcomes. Many lawyers praise themselves for winning a court case but for Canaan Lawyers, we take pride in achieving our clients’ desired outcomes. We understand that every client has different goals and needs. Some clients want to achieve a specific settlement whereas some clients may have different priorities. Regardless, many clients do not wish to spend astronomical amounts on legal fees to win a court case. Accordingly, our goal is to always achieve what our clients desire, and not what we think is the best for our clients. We never force our clients to accept an offer from the other side just because we see it as a reasonable offer.

DEEP UNDERSTANDING OF OUR CLIENTS

More than 90% of our clients are of an Asian background. Not only do we understand the way Asians do things, we also have extensive experience in clearly explaining to the court why and how our clients did what they did in order to advance their positions. We have achieved many excellent results over the years, including multi-million-dollar transactions, where no formal agreement (for example, only verbal agreement and WeChat messages) was entered between the parties.

We have also successfully defended many cases where our clients were misled into signing documents which they did not fully understand. Many Asian people, especially new migrants, are being misled into investing into projects and unknowingly become victims of civil fraud. It is our mission to recover their hard-earned money and provide better access to justice for Asian people living in Australia.

COMMUNICATION

When we communicate with our clients, we do not use legal jargons. We have the ability to explain the situation and our advice in a way which is easy to understand. If you can not communicate well with your own lawyers, not only it is very frustrating during the process but more importantly, it is very difficult to achieve the outcomes you desired.

 

KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE IN LITIGATION

We are not a law firm that is inexperienced in litigation and would engage a barrister every step of the way. We are litigation lawyers and would love to do most of the work ourselves. We would engage a barrister only when necessary and for some court appearances. We ensure that our clients would not be paying double in legal fees.
