Experienced litigation lawyers on the Gold Coast

Debt recovery

Whether it is a small or a large debt, we can give you advice in relation to your prospects of recovery and the most suitable course of action for your situation, and promptly commence action to recover the debt owing.

We can also assist you if you have received a letter of demand or a Court claim for a debt allegedly owed by you. If necessary, we can assist you with a response or the preparation of a defence if the debt is disputed.

We appreciate that recovery of debt can be a sensitive issue, so we do our best to take the stress out of it for you by dealing directly with debtors or creditors, or their solicitors, so you don’t have to.


We can assist you in the preparation of a claim or a response/defence in the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal (QCAT) and, if necessary, with the preparation for a settlement conference or hearing.

In certain situations, it is possible for you to apply to QCAT if you wish to be legally represented. We can help you with the preparation of an application for legal representation if appropriate, and act on your behalf in your QCAT dispute.

Competition and consumer law

We have experience defending claims concerning alleged breaches of the Australian Consumer Law (“ACL”) in the Federal Court of Australia.

We can assist you if you have been accused of a breach of the ACL by providing advice as to your prospects of succeeding in defending a claim, or by liaising with the relevant authorities on your behalf.

Jon Starkey

We had Thomas Hatcher handle our conveyancing on our recent purchase of a commercial property. His attention to detail and professionalism was outstanding. I hope to use them again in the not too distant future.

Shane Counsell

I would highly recommend Woods Hatcher Solicitors. Thomas Hatcher was very helpful and happy to answer any of my questions. My property transfer was executed smoothly and I received great communication at each stage. I was also really happy with the convenience of the location of their two offices.

Michael Hollingworth

Nick Hatcher helped me most efficiently to resolve a matter promptly.


Brunella Rowbottom and her team are amazing. They are prompt, professional, and meet your needs. I have used them before and would gladly use their services again.
