Civil Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution
Although we strongly advocate that prevention of disputes is best, some conflicts cannot be foreseen nor avoided (not in its entirety), despite planning ahead.
In serving all your needs, we also offer a specialist civil litigation service, which includes representation in the following:
- Magistrates Court
- High Court
- Supreme Court of Appeal
- Constitutional Court
Alternative Dispute Resolution:
- We also represent clients at forums of alternative dispute resolution, e.g. various tribunals, commissions, mediation and arbitration.
- Also, we offer independent Mediation services and serve on several panels for mediators, including the Arbitration Foundation of Southern Africa and the Association of Arbitrators.
