Sterling Law gets costs order against solicitor — Sterling Law QLD

This week, Sterling Law obtained a costs order on the indemnity basis against a solicitor in the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia. We are so glad that our client was fully compensated for a frivolous Application in a Case after a trial to re-open the evidence.

We had no assistance from Counsel or anyone else, we pulled this stunning result off single-handedly. Senior Counsel for the other side was lucky that he avoided getting a costs order against him as well.

This case is a handy reminder of the need for lawyers to only bring proceedings that have some merit, and not for an ulterior motive of causing undue delay.
