Landlord/Tenant Disputes
While most residential tenancy disputes can be handled through the Residential Tenancy Dispute Resolution Service, we can assist and advise landlords and tenants as to their legal rights under the Residential Tenancies Act. In the commercial sphere, BARR LLP has assisted companies large and small in negotiation, mediation, and litigation of breaches of Leases leading to solutions that work to allow our clients to continue commercial operations with a little disruption as possible.
Corporations and Divorce

Generally speaking, a divorce should not impact the operation of a corporation. However, there are some instances where a corporation could face a claim as part of a matrimonial action. BARR LLP has experienced family law lawyers with strong backgrounds in commercial litigation who can represent a corporation as part of a matrimonial action to advocate on behalf of the corporation outside the interest of the divorcing parties. Our lawyers can preserve the commercial efficacy of the ongoing business concern and the investment of other shareholders notwithstanding the action. If your corporation has been named as a party to a matrimonial action of a specific director or shareholder, contact our office today.
