International and
Domestic Arbitrations

Arbitrations have become the preferred method of bringing finality to disputes between parties. The process of arbitration is designed to circumvent the arduous processes set by Courts and still bring finality and enforceability to a dispute. The process of arbitration is formal in nature and the consequences, if not approached with caution, will be fatal in most cases.

Spanning some 30 years, Tiefenthaler has represented clients in some of the most complex disputes on the African continent.

Our latest experiences involve major mining, infrastructure, building, power, energy, oil and gas projects in Southern, Eastern and Western Africa, including several negligence claims against major engineering houses across the continent.

Our approach to disputes starts with minimising the risk of litigation. Although arbitration or court litigation is sometimes inevitable, we actively seek opportunities to resolve disputes as early as possible, whether it be through mediation, adjudication or negotiations.

If disputes do occur, our team of specialist litigators and arbitration specialists supported by industry experts are available to assist throughout the entire process until resolution.
