Dispute Resolution

Our Dispute Resolution practice reaches beyond mere successful litigation, ideally complementing our advisory practice. Our lawyers argue cases in local and appellate courts, all the way to the Supreme Court and Constitutional Court, as well as in foreign and domestic arbitration courts. From complex multiparty litigation to straightforward debt-recovery cases, we tailor the approach to our clients’ needs.

Our strong advisory background in business law provides our Dispute Resolution practice with much-needed expertise in dealing with a broad range of litigation matters. It enables us to understand and adapt our litigation strategies to achieve outcomes that are as practical and cost-effective as possible.

We differentiate ourselves from the litigation practices of other firms by placing a strong emphasis on administrative litigation, in particular antitrust, public procurement, and tax litigation. We have been involved from the beginning of the investment treaty arbitration related to our jurisdiction and maintain a strong focus on international, commercial and investment treaty arbitration. Our success in dealing with complex matters is rooted in our innate ability to team up with leading specialists in different areas such as accounting, financial, real-estate, engineering or forensics.
