Tim McFarlane

McFarlane Legal is a unique law firm that practices solely in the area of resolving disputes using alternative dispute resolution techniques, predominantly mediation and, where appropriate, facilitation.

Conflict is an unavoidable part of life and disputes occur in many forms. They can range from arguments between family members over the terms of a will, disputes with banks or insurance companies, claims against superannuation funds, through to complex multi-party litigation involving parties in other jurisdictions. When people or organisations are involved in disputes they want them resolved and, very frequently, they want to maintain a relationship with those involved. McFarlane Legal understand this and are experts in the area with an enviable track record of resolving the great majority of disputes they deal with, leaving the parties relieved and grateful.

The firm, led by principal Tim McFarlane, brings extensive and wide-ranging legal experience to the task of conflict resolution. All our practitioners are very experienced litigation lawyers who have moved to specialise and practice solely in this area. We work with parties and their lawyers and other representatives to resolve disputes that are within the court or tribunal system and those that have not yet reached the stage of formal litigation.
