Litigation & Arbitration

Our goal is to provide clients with business-oriented legal advice with practical guidance on the avoidance or solving of problems. We assist in developing strategic policies and processes to minimize clients’ litigation exposure in a cost efficient manner.

If litigation is inevitable, we provide complex assessment and competent opinions on the outcome of commercial and civil cases due to the experience of our team members as lawyers and arbitrators. We represent our clients in all court instances and all litigation-related actions. Upon successful completion of a trial, we organise enforcement procedures until the final satisfaction of our clients’ claims with the aim of recouping all their losses and costs.
