Dispute Resolution

"The constitution is the ultimate custodian of social will and its making should be accorded all due diligence"

Mwai Kibaki

What we do


At Millhouse Legal Advisory, we handle arbitration matters,  whether between commercial adversaries or by investors against states. We also do court proceedings relating to arbitration, including court applications to uphold arbitration agreements or to set aside awards.  Most of our arbitration matters have domestic dimensions. We also handle mediations. In arbitration and mediation,  our approach is the same approach that we take with litigation: speed, thoroughness, imagination, clarity as to goals and strategy,  and with realism. 

For the most part of our years of practice at MLA, we have advised and successfully represented leading clients in virtually every sector of the economy on matters that were critical, novel, complex, large and in the news. Our lawyers are experienced in handling trials and appeals, dispositive motions and motions for stays and injunctions. We work with speed, thoroughness and imagination, and with clarity as to goals, strategy and options from as early in the life of a dispute as possible.  We focus on achieving our clients’  commercial aims and with an eye on what is realistic and practical.  We also audit and manage large portfolios of disputes proceedings.

Approach & Strategies

Dispute resolution processes fall into two major types: Adjudicative processes, such as litigation or arbitration, in which a judge, jury or arbitrator determines the outcome. Consensual processes, such as collaborative law, mediation, conciliation, or negotiation, in which the parties attempt to reach agreement. At MLA, we also use extrajudicial processes such as arbitration, collaborative law, and mediation to resolve conflict and potential conflict between and among individuals, business entities and governmental agencies.
