Dispute Resolution

The CMS Oman office has a leading team of local disputes resolution lawyers who collaborate closely on advising high-profile multinational and domestic clients on a wide variety of disputes. Our lawyers have a deep familiarity with the civil law jurisdiction and the court and arbitral processes in Oman and the wider region.

The dispute resolution team at CMS Oman has significant experience before the Omani courts in relation to complex and high value litigation matters, representing domestic and international companies, government entities and private individuals on a wide range of litigious matters, regulatory proceedings and administrative law claims.

Our local team can provide you with proactive dispute avoidance advice and guidance on the most effective method for resolving your disputes. We can represent you in civil and commercial disputes – such as labour and employment, corporate, intellectual property, competition, construction and product liability disputes – and have particular expertise in infrastructure disputes and international arbitration.

Unlike most major law firms, you won’t find a litigation department at CMS. What you will find is a team of nearly 600 lawyers who share a refreshing approach to disputes. Our sector-focused lawyers are not just litigators and arbitration specialists, but business-minded problem solvers. We routinely act in all business areas before courts, arbitral tribunals and regulatory authorities. We can handle your dispute across any jurisdiction, obtain judicial assistance in foreign proceedings and deal with enforcement procedures for foreign judgements and arbitral awards.
