Our Expert Mediation Lawyers Work to Keep you Out of Court

Decisive. Cost Effective. Proactive.

Anumis Legal are expert dispute resolution litigation lawyers who specialise in keeping you out of court.

We take a strategic approach & set clear objectives & timeframes from the outset so that expectations & costs are as clear as possible.

Mediation Lawyers negotiating on the Sunshine Coast

Would you save money by settling your matter by negotiation or mediation?


Save yourself the stress and cost of court or a long, drawn-out dispute and instruct Anumis Legal to skilfully and robustly represent you to negotiate, or to mediate, your settlement.

Expert negotiation is a powerful strategic and financial choice for achieving a positive environment for the resolution of your dispute.

Mediation is a structured negotiation process in which we can assist you and the other party to identify and assess your options and negotiate an agreement to resolve their dispute. Mediation is an alternative to a judge imposing a decision on the parties and offers many benefits over a trial by a judge.

With outstanding legal commercial expertise as a base line, drjohn, our principal, is a registered mediator and has the qualifications, decades of practical experience, and strategic business smarts to offer you dispute resolution solutions that will give you a commercial and legal edge – and save you money, stress and time.
