Indeed, our work is very well regarded in the West by academics and lawyers alike and there is no parallel to it in South Asia’s local legal fraternity. We routinely provide expert reports on Pakistani law to assist the English courts in proceedings where issues arise relating to the interaction of UK-Pakistan law. Our expert reports assist the English courts on issues connected to the UK-Pakistan Protocol on Children Matters, Pakistan’s accession to the Hague Convention, and the consequences of removing British children from the jurisdiction. We are also renowned for providing expert legal opinions in relation to Pakistan corporate law including themes connected to banking, construction, energy, media, telecommunications and property law and the interface of these fields with civil and criminal procedure.
Because of our longstanding involvement in international law, we possess a natural flair for public law and routinely also advise on the process of inter-country adoption. Because we are a modern and multilingual law firm, members of our staff speak Arabic, English, French, German, Gujarati, Hindi, Punjabi, Thai, Sindhi, Pashto and Urdu. We place serious emphasis on the dissemination of legal information through social media and blogging. This blog is written to provide readers with news, case analysis and commentary on immigration, asylum and nationality law. It should never be read for the purposes of taking legal advice.
