Litigation & Disputes

Areas of Practice

Litigation & Alternative Dispute Resolution


G&A’s litigation practice is consistently at the cutting edge of the leading commercial and corporate litigation battles dominating national headlines. We are determined to accurately evaluate potential litigation at the first instance but in circumstances where litigation is inevitable, we utilize all of our resources in the best possible manner so that matters can be resolved quickly and economically. This is why our clients turn to us to handle their “must-win” trials, business disputes, and government enforcement matters.

With a tight-knit group of litigators with a combined legal expertise of over 150 years, G&A can rapidly assemble a focused, integrated, and efficient team to approach each matter with intensity, thoroughness, and creativity and achieve the most efficient and favorable results.

Mr. Keshab Prasad Mainali, a retired Chief Judge of Courts of Appeal of Nepal, heads our nationally-acclaimed litigation team. Prior to entering the judiciary, Mr. Mainali was a renowned and successful litigator in his own right.

We represent our clients in all of the administrative offices, judicial tribunals, the District Courts, the Appellate Courts, and in the Supreme Court of Nepal. Gandhi & Associates specializes in collaborating with law firms from different jurisdictions to bring lawsuits in foreign jurisdictions or in Nepal.

  3. Corporate litigation;
  4. Environmental litigation;
  5. Information technology disputes;

Alternative Dispute Resolution

Gandhi & Associates primarily advises clients in their business decisions and plans that pose arbitration and litigation risks on the basis of the agreements entered into by the clients. We also represent clients in arbitration, mediation, and other alternative dispute resolution proceedings as well as assisting them in enforcing their international arbitral awards in Nepal as per the Arbitration Act of 1995.

Including disputes heard under the auspices of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL), our lawyers are involved with numerous large-dollar-amount commercial arbitrations. Accordingly, we have participated in alternative dispute resolution proceedings in a wide-range of industries, including construction, electronics, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, mining, power generation, project engineering, and utilities.
