Partner | Accredited Dispute Resolution & Commercial Litigation Specialist

Evatt Styles

“Resolving disputes could be simple – it is a pity that people are not.

Dispute Resolution is the fine balance of strategy, process, timing and trust.
Litigation is a fine balance too, but there is often no level of trust. When there is a level of trust, nearly anything is possible.

You should not require the expertise of both, but often, you just do.” – Evatt Styles

Evatt Styles is an Accredited Specialist in Dispute Resolution, and his skill and knowledge in constructively resolving disputes is recognised by his membership of the Advisory Committee for Accredited Specialist- Dispute Resolution that assesses candidates (sub-committee of the Law Society of NSW).

Of course, all weapons should be available at the client’s option, and Evatt is also an Accredited Specialist in Commercial Litigation.

Evatt has an international perspective. He is widely travelled with a sound understanding of people and cultures with family ties in Hong Kong and Singapore, broadened by significant periods in Germany and Europe, arising from scholarships and various roles/internships at various courts and firms.

Evatt is recognised by his peers for his expertise. His clients value his approach – describing him as measured, balanced, approachable, commercially astute, strategically aware, and tenacious in resolving disputes. Evatt would say that he just likes solving commercial problems with a straight bat.

Evatt’s dispute resolution expertise is as diverse as his background; he has acted for domestic and international clients (from small to mid-size businesses, individuals, such as directors, not for profit charities, sporting organisations, institutions to listed/unlisted companies).

Clients and legal practitioners value working with Evatt in commercial dispute resolution, urgent injunctive relief (search, seize and freeze orders), equity, insolvency, sports and cross border disputes. Evatt appears in the Supreme Court of New South Wales, Supreme Court of Queensland, Supreme Court of Victoria, and Federal Court of Australia, as well as other state courts and tribunals.

Any reference to a “Partner” means an employee with sufficient seniority. Longton Legal is an incorporated legal practice and not a partnership.
