The core mission of Tait & Co is to ensure that everything we do for you accurately reflects your personal and business goals as well as protects your business, your wealth and your loved ones. We are enthusiastic about finding new and at times unconventional ways to support you as you navigate through the Australian legal system and the issues that you face.
We believe that, where possible, disputes should be resolved on a commercial basis outside of the court system as that will usually give you the optimum outcome. However, where this is not possible, we have over 20 years’ experience in representing business owners, executives and employees in various courts, including the Magistrates Court of Western Australia, the District Court of Western Australia, the Supreme Court of Western Australia, the State Administrative Tribunal of Western Australia, the Federal Court of Australia and the Federal Circuit Court of Australia.
We provide prompt, efficient and professional legal advice to help you handle your affairs as quickly and accurately as possible. We conduct extensive research to find the best practical solution for your matter while paying attention to the finer details even for the most complex and stressful court matters. We seek outcomes that have your best interests at heart and that result in significant benefits and savings for you.
