Derailment recovery

We acted for a state government agency responsible for rail infrastructure in relation to a derailment which caused damage to 53km of track. The agency initially retained a top-tier firm to conduct litigation to recover repair costs estimated at up to $5 million. After years of litigation, concerns with high legal costs, we were engaged by the agency. Within four months of being engaged, we were successful in a multi-million dollar recovery for the agency at mediation.
