The Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal (“QCAT”) is an independent Tribunal which seeks to resolve disputes between parties in an informal way that is easily accessible and less costly than the Courts.

QCAT’s jurisdiction not only enables it to determine certain matters at first instance, but it can also review decisions of Government Agencies and Statutory Authorities.

Bennett & Philp Lawyers can assist you to submit or defend proceedings in QCAT, by drafting the relevant Application or Response documents and also assembling the necessary evidentiary material, on your behalf.

Whilst QCAT encourages self-representation, some more complex disputes require a party to seek the assistance of a legal professional to enable the best prospects of a favourable resolution. Should your matter involve complex questions of fact or law, Bennett & Philp Lawyers can assist you in seeking the leave of QCAT, to permit you to be legally represented in your proceedings.  

At Bennett & Philp Lawyers, we regularly assist our clients in QCAT proceedings involving building disputes, consumer issues, debts, minor civil disputes, residential tenancy disputes and retail shop lease disputes.

Bennett & Philp Lawyers can assist with a wide range of QCAT disputes - call one of our Litigation Team members today on +61 7 3001 2999.
