Gibbs Wright Guarantees apply to most individuals and businesses that have both accepted and have fully complied with our Client Agreement. All Gibbs Wright Guarantees are subject to any relevant laws or ethical obligations.
We provide the following 7 Gibbs Wright Guarantees
to our clients.
1. WINNING IS EVERYTHING
As a litigation firm, we understand that winning is everything. Not only is our practice dedicated to winning within a legal and ethical framework, it’s our company’s mission.
If you do not consider your lawyer is doing everything to win, let our Principal Solicitor know. Spencer Wright will review your concerns for free.
2. WE ARE FLEXIBLE WITH OUR FEES
In most civil litigation matters the winner will be awarded an order for costs for their legal fees, but most litigation firms require their client to pay upfront. We like to work differently, but because not all matters are the same, we ask that you contact us to discuss your matter as well as what arrangement (if any) can be offered to you. We will consider the merits of each case and your financial circumstances.
3. LOW COST LITIGATION
With most plaintiff matters, our usual motivation is that the majority of your legal costs will be paid by the defendant. Why? Not only because it is great for you, but because you’ll use us again and again and again.
It is not always possible to receive a costs order (although the default position is that the winner receives a costs order for at least some of their costs) but we will provide to all plaintiffs a general advice about costs orders, in addition to ongoing advice when required.
If we fail to give to you (if you are a plaintiff) advice about costs within 30 days after a defence has been filed, let us know and we will give you a $250 credit.
4. NO LOCK IN CONTRACTS
We do not lock you into any contracts for a fixed amount of time. We base our business on mutual relationships with clients, so you can expect exceptional service and dedication to your matter.
5. WHAT WE DO WHEN SOMETHING GOES WRONG
In any civil litigation matter, if you lose at trial and we told you that you would likely win in our most recent prospects advice then we guarantee to consider your avenues of appeal.
If in our view an appeal has good prospects then we will agree not to charge you for our professional fees of the appeal unless you are successful but note that you may still face an adverse costs order if you lose and there may be other costs.
There are some exceptions to this guarantee, including if you give false, misleading or incredible information to us or to the court, if you give evidence at trial that is different to what you have previously told us, or in any other event where the reason for losing was contributed by you.
6. WE ARE A FULLY-INSURED MEMBER OF THE QUEENSLAND LAW SOCIETY
Gibbs Wright Lawyers is a Queensland law practice and complies with the membership requirements of the Queensland Law Society. Gibbs Wright Lawyers are experienced (and almost entirely so) in the Queensland jurisdiction.
Don’t risk a lawyer attempting to be an expert in every State and Territory in Australia!
We also hold professional liability insurance with Lexon Insurance, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Queensland Law Society.
7. TALK TO US FOR FREE ABOUT COSTS
We try to be upfront with you about costs, but if you have any questions, we will not charge you for answering your questions relating to our professional fees.
Do you want a firm that backs itself with guarantees like no other?
Gibbs Wright Lawyers is a Brisbane based litigation and dispute resolution law firm that services all of Queensland. We are not aware of any law firm that offers guarantees like us, in fact, we don’t know any firm that is remotely similar to us.
We are different. We focus on winning, not on how much money we can take from clients.
Great legal representation should not be exclusive to the biggest companies and sometimes we like a good David and Goliath fight. So if you think we are too exclusive, or too expensive, or not for you, give us a call because we think that you will be pleasantly surprised.
