Overview

Our Firm's dispute resolution practice draws from a group of remarkably talented and highly experienced litigators and arbitration practitioners. We represent sophisticated individuals and entities in all stages of disputes before Jordanian courts, as well as before local and international arbitral tribunals.

We are well known in the market as the "go-to firm" and entrusted partner for complex disputes and contentious matters involving high stakes.

Our Firm has extensive expertise in a wide range of disputes and claims, including banking, contractual and commercial, commercial-agency, joint venture, energy, insolvency, corporate and shareholder litigation, construction, employment, tax and customs, intellectual property, as well as maritime.

Notably, with over one hundred years of practice, our exceptional track record is unparalleled in the market. In fact, some of the most prominent court precedents in a variety of areas, including banking, corporate litigation, enforcement of foreign judgments and arbitral awards, tax disputes and commercial agency claims, have been established through cases argued by our Firm.

To date, our successful representation of First National Bank of Chicago (now Bank One) in a billion-dollar claim brought against it before Jordanian courts remains to be the highest-value claim ever heard by Jordanian courts.
