Litigation, International Arbitration


When conducting business activities, conflicts arising from contrasting views on certain situations or interests can occur between business entities, or between business entities and state authorities. Such situations will logically result in the search for a way to settle these disputes. Presently, the most common way is to file the dispute in a court, or to go through arbitration. Lately some attempts have been made to find alternative settlements of legal disputes. Each way is specified by rules which, if ignored, may result in the case being lost, even if you are in the right. Our lawyers possess a profound knowledge about how to conduct matters with various authorities and organizations, and will represent your interests to the best of their abilities.

The main focuses of our legal assistance are:

  • Analysis and planning while the case is being considered
  • Insurance and reinsurance disputes
