How we work: We help you to achieve outcomes and preserve relationships.

Resolve Advisors Pty Ltd was founded in 1996. We design processes for dispute resolution and group decision making.

We offer the expertise built on big firm experience, combined with the agility of boutique practice. We have provided effective solutions to over 1000 disputes.

Shirli Kirschner founded the business with the aim of creating a highly trained, dynamic and specialised team capable of responding to any type of dispute efficiently. Each member of the Resolve team has their own independent practice in mediation and dispute resolution. Resolve Advisors brings all these professionals together to provide the advantage of diverse and complementary experience in resolving complex problems.

All of our work is informed by solid theory and grounded in years of experience. On the basis of these tried and tested methods, we create flexible, customised solutions to provide you with insights into problem solving to respond in new ways.

Our methods are flexible and responsive. We have created tailored solutions to a broad field of business and personal problems and we have a proven track record of achieving quick and satisfying results for all parties.
