Litigation

Lawyer Litigation

All entrepreneurs understand that procedural law rests at the very core of the legal system. Many disputes between parties find mutual resolution, yet it is precisely those disputes that escalate into litigation need effective resolution. Judges, arbitrators are called into play to settle the lawsuit. More often than not, to be in the ‘right’ does not translate into a winning suit. To persuade the judge/arbitrator that you are actually ‘in the right’ is an artform: the métier of the litigator.

The litigation department at Van Diepen Van der Kroef specialises in the complexities of court cases, arbitration and/or binding advice and will assist along the procedural path to resolution. Our lawyers offer expert advice, creative as well as solid strategies and serve writs of attachment to preserve assets. Litigators at our firm will represent you throughout the civil procedure process in court, on appeal and of course at the Commercial Division at court. Cross-border litigation and international arbitration are additional fields of expertise within the practice group.

The chance for settlement will be enhanced by the appropriate strategy and procedural path. You will receive insightful advice if a judgment rather than a settlement is to your advantage.
