Commercial Dispute Resolution Services

Often businesses may be affected by commercial disputes which, are an inconvenient distraction that drains you of time and energy to continue effectively managing your business.

Disputes may arise from a number of different business operation aspects including:

  • Commercial transactions with suppliers
  • Customer complaints
  • Debt recovery
  • Employment matters
  • Intellectual property
  • Insolvency
  • Negligence of corporate responsibility
  • Lack of compliance with government regulations, such as environmental and workplace regulations.

It’s important not to jump the gun and proceed with investigative, adversarial litigation that drains more money from the business. More often than not, a fresh set of eyes will reveal other, more civil alternatives to resolve a commercial dispute, such as informal negotiation. Commercial dispute services can help to determine the best mode of action regarding your dispute.

Dispute support services involve the process of providing consultation and support to mediators or legal representatives in regard to your particular case and can refer to:


  • Legal assistance & research
  • Property and asset valuation
  • Forensic accounting services
  • Financial investigation
  • Strategising alternate solutions other than court proceedings

Effective Dispute Resolutions

The most important factor to successful and civil dispute resolution is for the third party (us) to have a complete understanding of your business and the nature of operations, specifically surrounding the dispute.

From here, we’re then able to determine a solution based strategy, that saves you time, money and added stress by avoiding court proceedings where possible. With our strategy, we are able to advise you on the best plan of defence and liaise with your mediator or legal representative to ensure a smooth resolution.

Successful Stories From Our Clients


Our team’s unique experience and extensive skill has assisted countless Perth business owners to move past financial strive and work towards a bright and successful future. Here are some of our success stories:

Miranda was struggling to meet her 12-month payment arrangements with the ATO and, as 12-month arrangements are the most that the ATO will grant, Miranda felt that her financial position was a lost cause. After speaking with Lawrence Corporate Solutions, however, Miranda’s confidence was restored. Lawrence Corporate Solutions successfully negotiated a 24-month extended payment arrangement with the ATO, giving Miranda the breathing room that she needed to get back to running her business.

Sharon found herself being chased by the ATO for a mounting tax debt, and as her spouse had recently been unable work, it couldn’t have come at a worse time. With constant calls and letters, Sharon welcomed Empire Corporate Services stepping in and liaising with the ATO on her behalf. In the end, Sharon prevailed with a $79,904.62 remittance before the final balance was paid out.

After an accident that rendered David unable to work, he was forced to use his tax savings to live on. Very worried and not sure where to turn, Empire Corporate Services worked closely on David’s case and secured him an interest remittance of nearly $7,000 to cope with his financial stress.

With a mountain of ATO penalties (including the dreaded General Interest Charges (GIC), Failure to Lodge (FTL) penalties and business stresses mounting, Shane was in a dire financial position. On Shane’s behalf, Empire Corporate Services was able to remit over $34,000 after just one phone call. Shane’s headaches cleared and it was back to furthering his business!

When Sam’s major debtor went into $2m liquidation, Sam’s business hit a pivotal crossroads. Based on the guidance of his previous advisors, Sam felt his only option was to go bankrupt. With the help of Empire Corporate Services, Sam got his business valued and sold, paid back the bank debt owing and additional funding in place for all other unsecured creditors… all within a fast turnaround of just 6 weeks.

Mitchell came in for a general financial review to set his business on the right path to grow. Upon reviewing Mitchell’s financial structure, Empire Corporate Services discovered that Mitchell had ATO debts totaling more than $550,000… and Mitchell was totally unaware of what he owed. After extensive work in tracking back over Mitchell’s previous returns and BAS’s (as well as righting the submission errors that Mitchell had made), Empire Corporate Services successfully helped Mitchell receive remission of interests of his debts, totaling $320,000.

For a long time Kate didn’t realise… but the ATO had placed $10,000 in interest and fees on top of her tax bill after a she had previously filed a claim incorrectly. Understandably, Kate was frightened about what might happen to her. Lawrence Corporate Solutions stepped in on her behalf and successfully negotiated for a substantial reduction in the outstanding ATO balance. Kate went from owing $10,000 to receiving a $2,000 refund.
