This content is provided by RIAA Barker Gillette.


Dispute resolution is part of the very core of RIAA Barker Gillette’s litigation practice in Pakistan. The variety of dispute resolution matters on which the Firm is engaged in the Supreme Courts, High Courts, Tribunals, regulatory bodies, courts of first instance and arbitral tribunals (domestic and international), their complexity and track record of our practitioners sets the Firm apart from most of the major law firms in Pakistan. 

RIAA Barker Gillette is the only law firm in Pakistan to have full-fledged resident litigation practices in four offices across the country. Moreover, our former partners are serving justices of the Supreme Court and of the Lahore High Court. 

We represent clients across a diverse range of industry sectors in constitutional petitions, civil suits, labour litigation, family and succession matters, banking suits and tax appeals. Our practice areas include litigation as well as domestic and international arbitration. Recently, we have been engaged in numerous complex disputes including:

  • Counsel to Samsonite Group before courts in a multi jurisdictional intellectual property dispute.
  • Counsel to The Hub Power Company Limited before the High Court of Sindh against CPPAG (the entity designated to purchase power by the Federal Government) in a major payment dispute.
  • Counsel to a major US construction firm in a constitutional challenge against tax demands of approximately USD 350mm premised on anti avoidance provisions under the income tax law.
