We are entirely focused on getting results for the client and we act for the biggest names in the business world – throughout the world.

  • a single-minded, dogged persistence

We work across a wide range of fraud, asset recovery and commercial disputes as well as other matters across various industry sectors, including financial, energy and natural resources, telecommunications, and real estate.

We have a particular strength in the provision of strategic oversight and management of cases which involve several law firms at the cross-border level. Membership of the Fraudnet group gives us immediate contact like-minded lawyers across more than 60 jurisdictions.

On numerous occasions the firm has won landmark decisions in the highest courts. Both the firm and individual partners are recognized in the principal Legal Directories and in other accolades.

So if you have a problem which needs a dedicated and inventive team with a highly pragmatic approach contact Steven Philippsohn, Anthony Riem or Trevor Mascarenhas for a preliminary discussion.
