A large number of corporate transactions trigger litigation and require support in the preparatory and execution phases. Much of our work revolves around corporate disputes such as breach of contract cases, disputes over the proper construction of agreements, shareholder disputes, disputes over joint ventures, and post-mergers and acquisitions disputes. In addition, we regularly advise on corporate governance related litigation, for example, shareholder disagreements, disputes on take-over bids and buy out procedures.

At MWKA, we recognise that prevention is better than cure and regularly advise clients on risk management issues. We are committed to work closely with our clients and assist them in both domestic and cross-border corporate dispute resolution.
