We provide the ultimate ground advantage for commercial disputes. Most cases are actually won or lost on the ground, where the assets are. That is where we come in. Many parties are hesitant to get involved in litigation in the emerging markets we cover, but local proceedings can also be turned into an advantage. If you know the terrain really well, that is.

Through our locally qualified network partners, we provide the full range of litigation, arbitration and dispute resolution services. Our litigators, trial lawyers and foreign consultants are known for their aggressive stance and creative approach.

We are known for never giving up. We leave no stone unturned to get you the leverage you need on the ground. Talk is cheap. Winning is everything. All the rest is chit chat.
