Our attorneys have an excellent reputation across all avenues of dispute resolution, including litigation, mediation, and arbitration, as well as ADR matters in various industries.

Our attorneys regularly handle commercial law matters, such as guidance for shareholders meetings and corporate restructuring, and dispute resolution through courts. Based on this accumulated practical experience, we also act in many non-contentious commercial proceedings, i.e. matters such as determination of consideration in corporate restructurings, legal effect of actions by the chairperson or others at shareholder meetings, disclosure of corporate minutes, proceedings related dissolution and liquidation, and appointments of provisional officers, etc.
