Client care is at the heart of our practice. We aim to provide seamless international legal services to our clients and take care to ensure that milestones are achieved and goals are met. Despite the depth of our knowledge and the wealth of our experience, our ultimate aim is to ensure that robust services are provided at an affordable price. Our strengths in the law are easily observed in our online legal publishing platforms such as our Immigration Blog and our Corporate Blog. These contributions to the analysis, study and dissemination of legal information match any law firm operating on the European stage. Indeed, our work is very well regarded in the West by academics and lawyers alike and (with great respect to our counterparts in the domestic legal fraternity) there is no parallel to it in Pakistan.
We routinely provide expert reports on Pakistani law to assist English courts in proceedings where issues arise relating to the interaction of UK-Pakistan law. Our reports assist the English court on issues connected to the UK-Pakistan Protocol on Children Matters and the consequences of removing British children from the jurisdiction. We are also well-known 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 naturalflair for public law and routinely also advise on the process of inter-country adoption.
