Tully is a specialist commercial litigator with more than 20 years’ experience. He practices almost exclusively in the Supreme and Federal Courts and has been involved, both as counsel and as instructing solicitor, in many trials and interlocutory hearings, including applications for interlocutory injunctions.
Tully is an experienced commercial negotiator and has had great success in resolving disputes for his clients through mediation without the expense and delay of a trial. In the modern commercial litigation practice the ability to negotiate effectively, either at formal mediations or meetings generally, is an essential skill. Tully believes that you should never lose sight of the end result, the key is to identify the client’s goal, then move to achieve that goal in a commercial and efficient way, but also in a way that is proportionate to the nature of the dispute.
While Tully has a broad range of experience, he has made a particular speciality of disputes involving the breakdown of the relationship between the co-owners of businesses. Whatever the structure – partnership, company or unit trust – he is able to guide his clients through these difficult situations, which generally involve divergent views as to relative contributions and expectations.
Tully is a member of the Law Society of Western Australia and a member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors. Tully is a Director of Williams + Hughes.
