What does all this mean for you?

Many people enter into commercial transactions with specific expectations. When these are not met and funds are lost in the process, they generally do not know where to go.

This is usually because they do not have the skills, the wherewithal or confidence to attempt to recover their losses. This is where we may be able to offer support.

Claims Administration Australia Pty Ltd has a professional team of experts on hand to rely upon and seek advice from those such as:

  • Forensic experts;
  • Investigators;
  • Lawyers; and
  • Barristers
