A branch of civil litigation, family law is an area dealing with disputes that may arise out of family relations such as divorce, adoption, financial remedies, or child custody and visitation rights. The Chambers of Narghis Bundhun is recognised as a leading family law set within the Mauritian Legal System and its members have made significant contribution to the development of this area of the law.
Put simply not criminal litigation. In other words, Civil Litigation is about the enforcement of civil rights between individuals or corporate bodies. Civil matters can be described as situations dealing with relationships between people, such as contractual disputes, landlord and tenant or compensation arising out of personal injury. Most members of the Chambers have a proven record in that aspect of Mauritian Law.
Criminal litigation differs from Civil Litigation in that the latter is a dispute between private parties whereas Criminal Litigation is brought by the state against an individual. Our barristers are fully committed to defending the best interests of our clients notwithstanding the offence they are charged with.
Arbitration is a dispute resolution process agreed between parties in which the dispute is submitted to one or more arbitrators who issue an award. It is an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) mechanism because it allows the parties to resolve their dispute outside of courts thus without litigation.
Another type of alternative dispute resolution, Mediation aims for the settlement of a dispute by setting up an independent person between two contending parties in order to assist them in the settlement of their disagreement.
