The firm

Thompson Eslick has been in business since 1993.

We specialise in commercial litigation, with particular emphasis on ASIC and other regulatory investigations, where we draw on over 30 years’ of expertise in that field of practice.

We also work with other lawyers with similar expertise to provide quality service cost efficiently for our clients.

We provide sensible and pragmatic advice to achieve the best and most cost-effective outcomes for our clients. We identify the real issues behind any dispute to develop strategies to resolve those disputes efficiently and satisfactorily. In some cases that may require the vigorous pursuit of litigation and in others working towards early outcomes using alternative dispute resolution mechanisms.

We ensure our clients are actively involved with the decision-making in their own matters.

We are well regarded by our peers and the bulk of our work comes by referral from other solicitors and barristers.
