Assisting you with effective resolutions in litigation, dispute resolution, mediation and arbitration.

DML’s litigation team has considerable experience in advising companies and individuals in respect of a wide range of disputes. We represent clients in disputes in a variety of commercial, regulatory and governmental disputes. These include: contracts, intellectual property, shareholder disputes, delinquent directors, the challenging of decisions by administrative bodies (including the B-BBEE Commissioner), the South African Revenues Services and the gaming and gambling industry.

Our experience extends to all facets of dispute resolution, including negotiation, mediation, arbitration and high court and appellate litigation. We have a unique offering as a medium tier firm, with “big law firm” experience at a fraction of the cost , and consistently engaging opposing teams from big firms.

Although focus is always on managing risks and, where possible, avoiding lengthy litigation, where litigation is unavoidable, we have the expertise and experience to support our clients and achieve favourable outcomes.

We have also been trusted by our clients with matters of high public interest, with a number of our attorneys having to engage with the media. Our litigators are calm and deliberate in their management of these kinds of matters, ensuring that our clients are well represented and that their legal rights are protected throughout.
