Amending A Defence

What happens if the evidence changes, or you see that your lawyer isn’t following your instructions, so you seek a different lawyer?

In a recent case involving litigation between 2 individuals, we successfully argued for the Supreme Court to allow us to amend a Defence.

We argued that the case put forward by the Plaintiff was neither clear nor able to be understood until after the original Defence had been filed.

Her Honour accepted our arguments, and allowed the amendments. The result was significant; the client avoided an application for Default Judgement by the other side, and ultimately, the case was resolved through settlement.
