Empowering clients with an understanding of their legal matters through innovative, transparent and specialist dispute resolution and litigation advice


Paula Sutherland & Associates is a specialist dispute resolution and litigation firm based in Hobart. Paula Sutherland regularly travels to Launceston and can meet clients in Launceston by prior arrangement.

The firm offers specialist advice, tailored to meet client needs, providing clients with practical solutions and options whilst identifying risks and possible outcomes in a way that best achieves the client’s desired outcomes. In the delivery of legal services, we are transparent with clients whilst promoting a good rapport which allows us to achieve the best outcome for the client whilst anticipating their future needs.

Experience is the key to providing comprehensive advice and delivering a service that clients can rely upon. This is achieved through exploring all avenues to resolve disputes without the need to institute legal proceedings, thereby avoiding the cost, personal stress and disruption that accompanies litigation. That said, litigation is inevitable in some circumstances and we are fierce advocates on behalf of clients in court, keeping clients regularly updated and informed as matters progress through the court system.

Paula Sutherland & Associates is an innovative and progressive firm, adopting a no-nonsense approach to all aspects of the dispute resolution process in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

We welcome client enquiries in relation to new and existing matters. Paula has regularly acted as agent for mainland firms and mercantile agencies and is happy to continue to do so.
