What We Do

Our state-of-the-art head office in Morningside is designed with the future in mind. More companies are turning to the arbitration process to resolve disputes. Our head office boasts an arbitration venue with a boardroom able to seat 40+ people, an interactive small “court room” (10 seats) and a normal boardroom (10 seats). Ready to host arbitrations, this gives us the competitive edge. Such arbitrations are normally chaired by retired judges and give a quicker resolution to corporate problems.
