Alternative Dispute Resolution

The firm begins advising the client about the alternative dispute resolution firstly through reconciliation efforts, then mediation and finally, as a last resort, litigation. This is carried out through specialized entities such as the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and the Cairo Regional Centre for International Commercial Arbitration (CRCICA). Alternatively, these solutions can be carried out through the offices of ESLF who can administer the dispute resolution through a fair and impartial process on an ad hoc basis. In this way, ESLF is careful to limit the exorbitant costs of using other arbitration authorities or entering into litigation cost as well as providing a fast service.
