Litigation

Our Arbitration & Commercial Litigation Lawyers are experienced at litigating a wide range of cases at every level of court up to the Supreme Court. We also appear on behalf of clients before various administrative tribunals.

Our Lawyers are experienced in undertaking major litigation assignments which involve the management of large quantities of documents and other evidence, frequently of a highly technical nature. Our Lawyers are equipped with leading-edge information systems that enable them to liaise with lawyers and staff outside the courtroom, and to quickly locate pertinent information from massive collections of documents at trial. Our Arbitration & Commercial Litigation Lawyers work closely with specialists in the Corporate & Commercial Team, using an integrated approach that brings together the relevant expertise required by each individual case.

Our Arbitration & Commercial Litigation Lawyers also have the skills to resolve issues through Mediation and Arbitration. Whenever possible, Mediation offers excellent risk management. It can trim years off the resolution of the case, thereby saving the client both time and money.
