About Us

We aim to help aggrieved private, corporate and business clients handle litigation. To accomplish our clients' goals we focus on and pursue textbook principles for conducting commercial litigation in many areas including breach of contract. We believe clients, who face tough legal dilemmas, should have access to great legal advice without them having to go to the so called big law firms. By instructing a seasoned and smaller litigation practice such as ours your case will be handled personally by the Principal Solicitor without being handed down the chain.

Litigant was started in September 2015 when founder Daniel Benjamin (Ben) Beukes brought his 13 years of commercial litigation experience to bear on helping accomplished individuals, families and businesses understand and finalise their commercial disputes. Mr Beukes realised that his former experience as a barrister at the NSW Bar, and past experience working in national and specialist boutique firms could help clients in Sydney more effectively meet their objectives of protecting their assets and prosecuting their rights. The firm focuses squarely on commercial litigation (and does not act on transactions) by aiming to provide concrete, targeted and actionable legal advice and services.

Litigant typically works with plaintiffs and defendants who feel deeply wronged by a dispute, who can afford litigation and who are also determined to make better decisions in the face of litigation. Our Sydney lawyers aim to deliver considered legal options, solutions and strategies in a complex environment. Our team is here to help you reach your objectives within the Sydney area whether it be to settle early on or to take the matter to trial.
