Hynes Mediation

More than one way to resolve your dispute.

There’s an old saying: if the only tool you have is a hammer then every problem looks like a nail. The same goes for law firms who pursue expensive litigation because that’s all they know. Hynes Legal is focused on finding workable solutions for its clients. That may well mean taking the legal route. Equally, it may mean pursuing mediation.

Under the expert guidance of Chris Irons – the former Commissioner for Body Corporate and Community Management with the Queensland Government ­– mediation is a solution to resolving a dispute that doesn’t require lawyers. It provides the opportunity for parties to voice their issues and then, under the guidance of a mediator, arrive at voluntary, workable solutions.

Management Rights

Navigating the management rights maze.

The sale and purchase of management rights can be a challenging legal process. Under the leadership of Frank Higginson, Hynes Legal have extensive experience in navigating the complex path of transacting management rights businesses, large and small.

Body corporate committees are also involved in these transactions when they vote on whether to consent to a transfer of management rights. These are not trivial decisions. It is vitally important committees have all the facts in front of them before voting. Make sure you get the right advice before voting.
