Conflict resolution is a highly specialised field requiring an astute strategic approach coupled with a thorough understanding of the particular law and a real understanding of the facts of a specific matter. We handle a host of matters relating to conflict and disputes, debt collection and recovery proceedings, enforcement and foreclosure proceedings, bankruptcy or winding up proceedings, general trade disputes and other forms of corporate and civil litigation. We also handle matters in other forums which include mediation, arbitration and alternative dispute resolutions.

We are positioned to deliver both local insight and global perspective to meet our client’s interest. We regularly appear before all courts and tribunals in the country. Not only do we handle claims of a very diverse nature for our clients, we are also very entrenched in the insurance and takaful industry where we do general motor and non-motor, life, family and medical negligence suits.
