Dispute Resolution

Excelling in preference

Sophisticated and complex business relationships at times can lead to disagreements. Often is the case that businesses frequently resolve their disputes amicably and that fosters an improved and continued relationship between the parties. When that fails however, litigation before courts or other alternative dispute settlement procedures are triggered.

Our lawyers have received international trainings on alternative dispute resolution mechanisms including mediation and international arbitration. In addition, our team benefits from first hand experienced lawyers in litigating major business, investment, labor and other disputes before Ethiopian courts. We combine both international and local expertise in dispute resolution as we have lawyers who have served as judges in the judiciary, litigated international cases before international arbitration tribunals and others who are experts in negotiation and amicable settlements of disputes.

Our team has triumphantly won several complex and large sum litigations before different levels of courts and administrative tribunals including the Ethiopian Tax Authority. Our lawyers have also been part of a team that consulted and advised a party to a dispute in a claim involving over a billion dollars.

We provide full-fledged legal services, including but not limited to:

  • Commercial Litigation at all levels of courts
  • Alternative dispute resolution (ADR)
  • Local and International Arbitration
  • Antitrust and unfair competition litigation
  • Construction, adjudication and litigation
  • Class actions
  • Opposition and persecution of IP rights infringement
