Al Suwaidi & Company provides clients with a distinct advantage, particularly when faced with complex controversies involving technologies developed around the world. At Al Suwaidi & Company, our patent lawyers have vast experience with mediations, arbitrations and other forms of alternative dispute resolution, and have frequently achieved successful results with these methods as an alternative to protracted and expensive litigation.

The most favourable settlements are often achieved by conveying a command and focus from the outset and demonstrating a preparedness to go to trial — and win. Our lead trial counsel is committed to the case from Day One and is hands-on in actively developing the case strategy, analysing the strengths and weaknesses of the case, evaluating potential opportunities for resolution and preparing the case for trial. Because of this targeted and focused approach, we are able to identify key trial issues early and avoid wasteful litigation tasks.
