Before Court: For Plaintiffs and Defendants

Litigation for Plaintiffs and Applicants

  • What claims am I entitled to if my doctor has committed malpractice or has not informed me properly?
  • After renovating my house, numerous building defects were discovered - it smells of botched work.
  • What should I do if I have had a traffic accident? Who pays for the repairs to my car? How much compensation for pain and suffering am I entitled to?

Litigation for Defendants

  • I am a doctor. A former patient claims that I have committed malpractice. How do I efficiently defend myself against a potential medical malpractice claim?
  • I have been served with an order for payment. How do I make my voice heard and defend myself effectively?
  • My tenant is demanding high repayments from me because I am allegedly charging too much rent. How do proceedings before the arbitration board work? What are the consequences of a rent review?
