‘… “provides solution-driven advice, is highly responsive”… also impresses in arbitration, including international and domestic proceedings’. – Legal 500, 2018

  • Overview

Overview

As on other continents, various methods of resolving conflicts are available to the parties to disputes in Africa. These include both litigation and alternative dispute resolution methods, such as mediation and arbitration.

We provide a professional and efficient legal service, whether in a court room, arbitration/ tribunal hearing or other dispute resolution forum.

We are proactive in resolving disputes in the best interest of our clients, emphasising the need to be efficient and expedient in the chosen course of action.

If formal litigation is ultimately unavoidable, our approach is to try to resolve disputes in the most cost-effective way possible. We have developed significant experience in commercial litigation.

As a result of the time that it takes to get to trial, as well as the appeal procedures involved, arbitration is regarded as a speedy and effective means of resolving disputes. A number of our lawyers are members of the Association of Arbitrators and have experience in both domestic and international arbitrations.

Our clients include large national clients in African jurisdictions where we have representation as well as multinationals and international law firms acting on their behalf, non-government entities, governments, state-owned entities and financial institutions.
