The law firm, in competition with other firms, is a leader in the provision of civil law services to citizens, companies, local authorities and government bodies. Services in this field are provided, in particular, in civil, labour and family law relationships. Thanks to their long experience in this field, some attorneys lecture and publish on it. The law firm provides its clients with both advice and comprehensive solutions. It drafts legal documents, contracts dealing with legal relations between clients and agreements settling disputed issues, always attempting to find the best solution for the client which gives him the greatest legal certainty. Some of the law firm's employees specialise in property. For this reason, the law firm also represents estate agents, whom it provides with legal services during conveyancing and agreements resolving relations between property owners. As such relations are very wide-ranging, the skills of the law firm's employees are constantly being perfected.

ZA-LLP is regarded as one of the preeminent litigation firms in Pakistan, and general civil litigation is the firm's mainstay. The firm has handled virtually every kind of litigation imaginable - for individuals and for institutions. It has been involved with the most complex cases facing businesses across the industry spectrum, with a particular emphasis on two things: first, rapid response when clients must obtain or resist emergency relief, and second, preparing cases for actual trial in the courtroom.


The firm's civil practice is national in scope. Lawyers from the firm have appeared in Supreme and High Courts throughout the country. They have provided national direction and co-ordination in class actions and other complex cases in which clients are forced to appear in numerous jurisdictions simultaneously. In these cases, the firm has experience in developing a comprehensive strategy, avoiding wasteful duplication of discovery efforts, making sure that consistent factual and legal positions are taken by local counsel, working closely with them to implement the national strategy, and co-ordinating with other counsel in joint defense arrangements. Through these efforts, the firm works to achieve the best possible litigation results with cost efficiency, including saving the valuable time of corporate executives and employees.

In ancient times where there was a dispute over property, one had to defend those rights with sword and spear. Even today, if you do not defend your rights you will lose them. Fortunately, battle is now waged in courts instead of on a battlefield. We are all potential Plaintiffs or Defendants. The Law Offices of ZA-LLP specialize in battles pertaining to intellectual and real property rights. We will advise you of those rights, your chances of winning or losing your battle and the possible costs involved. We have been involved in federal litigation over patents, trademarks, copyrights, the right of privacy and publicity. In the state courts we have specialized in real property, contract litigation, and collections. Although references are available.

In the legal world, "The best battle is often the battle never fought." ZA-LLP also advises clients on how to avoid litigation. Before using a new, possibly innovative, product we can do a patent search for you. Before using a new trademark or service mark we can search to see if anyone else is using a confusingly similar mark. If you are in business or going into business we can tell you the probable result of the signing of a contract or what will happen if you breach a previously signed contract. We are experienced in many other areas. Please do not hesitate to ask about any issue.

If you have a civil matter and are not sure what to do about it we would be happy to sit down with you and discuss the situation. We will not charge you for this initial consultation if you do not retain us. Our aim is to help you obtain the best results at the lowest cost.


Our Core Competencies

1

Collaborative Skillset

Collaborative lawyers trust the wisdom of the group; lone wolves and isolationists do not do any good anymore.

2

Emotional Intelligence

Distant, detached lawyers are relics of the 20th century, the market no longer wants a lawyer who is only half a person.

3

Technological Affinity

If you can not effectively and efficiently use e-communications, and mobile tech, you might as well just stay home.

4

Time Management

Virtually a substantial part of lawyers difficulties in this regard lie with their inability to prioritise their time.

    Kevin Lessani - Dallas - USA
  • I greatly appreciate that your law firm is very careful in its preparation of petitions. In fact, the outcome of a legal fight greatly depends on how effectively a law firm has presented its case. If it fails to conceive in advance as to what it will have to face in defense, it can not prepare an effective petition. I admire that ZAFAR & ASSOCIATES - LLP are very careful in their initial step i.e. to prepare petition, around which the whole legal battle is fought.
