Litigation

Our unique skillset, combining broad perspective, cultural familiarity, linguistic capability and in-depth understanding of local laws, is what really sets us apart. Crucially, our lawyers have rights of audience before regional courts. As such, we’ve become the go-to firm for high-stakes disputes involving complicated fact patterns, as well as novel questions of law. And, beyond the GCC, our London team concentrates solely on heavyweight commercial disputes; their experience in the financial world is second-to-none; from sophisticated capital and credit funds to institutions and sovereign wealth. We aim to be the destination practice for corporate and M&A disputes, investor-state arbitration, finance litigation, shareholder disputes, investigations, crisis management, fraud and competition litigation, and international commercial arbitration.
