Arbitration has become an increasingly popular alternative to litigation because it is usually quicker and more cost effective for the parties. In addition, many contracts require that any dispute between the contracting parties be submitted to arbitration rather than litigation.
Whether you are looking for an attorney to advocate for you in an arbitration proceeding, or you are looking for an attorney to act as an arbitrator, KTA Associates can help.

At Karuhanga Tabaro & Associates, we believe in the alternative resolution of disputes, and regard courts as a last resort option.
We have therefore been involved in a substantial amount of arbitration, mediation and negotiation proceedings and have secured countless out of court settlements on behalf of our clients. These settlements have saved our clients time, expense and other constraints of unnecessary litigation.
The Firm`s consultant is also available to act as an arbitrator or mediator in disputes that might require such a service.
We offer legal opinions on all legal matters that our clients may wish to consult. These are usually at a client’s request or at our own investigation after analyzing a problem. They range from compliance advice on transactions or private arrangements, review of standard forms of agreement, advice on legal and regulatory compliance and identifying legal hitches and loopholes and how to circumvent them. This is done after detailed research by our legal assistants who discuss their opinions with the Senior Advocates and a common opinion of the law is formed and put down in writing.
For the many companies that have retained us as their company secretary, we attend periodic board meetings where we advise on legal issues arising. We act for both small, medium companies and big ones for the private sector. We also negotiate contracts on behalf of our clients some of whom do not have a local presence. We regularly negotiate for excluding of loans and mortgage repayments.
