If the parties have to resort to litigation, we assist and advice on litigation process. Commercial litigation in Tanzania has been transformed by creation of the Commercial Division of the High Court of Tanzania. Following the creation of the Commercial Division of the High Court of Tanzania, commercial disputes can now be adjudicated within a short period and in a more efficient manner. Furthermore, the creation of the Land Division of the High Court of Tanzania has also increased efficiency in the process of property disputes adjudication. The Land Division of the High Court of Tanzania adjudicates disputes on properties (including commercial disputes involving properties) in a quick and more efficient manner. Other specialized tribunals where we provide litigation services include Fair Competition Tribunal, Trademark Office, Patent Office, Tax Appeals Board and Tax Appeals Tribunal.
