Pioneers lawyers are taught to prepare thoroughly for any negotiation. For each case, Pioneers partners draw the way forward with the Client and agree on the strategy. All our negotiation processes are planned with the Partners to know what the format of the negotiation will be and how to handle it. Once our Team of negotiators has agreed upon a compromise, solution, or deal, the next step is to commit to how that deal is to be implemented. This means knowing what to do next to make your agreement a reality.
At Pioneers, we strongly believe, that all cases are unique and that we shall analyze the specificities of the case thoroughly and through the Best Alternative Negotiated Solution to determine either to settle out of court or to litigate. We believe that a good out-of-court settlement agreement through negotiation worth better than a bad judgment.
Whilst Pioneers negotiates multiple contracts (i.e Foreign direct investments in the KSA, Cross-border Joint-Ventures, Registration of Companies, Distributions, Sale and Purchase agreements, settlement of disputes, etc.), its core activity remains in the Court Room.
Pioneers built its name as a strong litigator in the Court Room in Jeddah.
Pioneers represents Plaintiffs and Defendants in administrative, civil, commercial, and criminal cases and manages all phases of the litigation process from the investigation, pleadings, and discovery to pre-trial, trial, settlement, and appeal.
At Pioneers, the litigators are highly educated and well trained. They provide an immediate initial case assessment and undertake an internal due diligence cross-checking and investigation to determine if enough evidence exists to warrant filing a lawsuit. In a defendant case, the Team of Litigators will assess what evidence exists to defend a potential or existing suit against its Client(s).
The Litigators draft the pleadings, memorandums, motions based on the applicable Saudi Law and referring to the Saudi Jurisprudence/Precedents. When the cases proceed to trial, the Litigators are busy around the clock presenting their cases before the Judge.
For each Court case, a partner, the team of Litigators support the paralegal staff do their utmost for the Client to feel at ease and for them to have their interests preserved. Knowledge Pioneers Law Firm represents clients in Courts of First Instance, Courts of Appeal, and the Supreme Court.
Knowledge Pioneers Law Firm has gained strong expertise as both an arbitrator in an arbitral tribunal as well as a lawyer before an ordinary judiciary panel. Therefore, we are well equipped to deal with such matters. Whether the contract stipulates that the dispute shall be resolved through Arbitration or Mediation (aka A.D.R), this will be easy for the Firm to pursue a conclusive decision that is in favor of our client.
Arbitration is one form of dispute resolution alternative to court litigation. Arbitration is the real alternative to domestic courts for resolving disputes with an international dimension. Its purpose is to utilize a panel of professionals and experts to resolve a dispute that cannot be resolved through consensus and court litigation appears to be prohibitively expensive, inconvenient or both.
Pioneers Law Firm represents Clients (as plaintiffs or defendants) before the arbitration tribunals and advises them on the best strategies to conduct their cases, whether ad hoc or institutional where the arbitration is the chosen mode for dispute resolution.
On a case by case, we are called either to negotiate, litigate or resolve the issue(s) at hand through alternative dispute resolutions (i.e arbitration, mediation). Our Partners and the Team of legal professionals use their utmost skills, knowledge, and abilities to represent and defend the interests of our Client in any of the above scenarios.
