For once I made the right decision- choosing Karim Mohamed. Having Karim acting for me in a case where the other party was in Australia was never going to be easy. However Karim was efficient, and effective and always responded to my communications. A positive result. Thank you Karim and your team.

I want to express my grateful thanks for all your work. It has been quite an eye opener realizing just how complex and time consuming going to litigation can be, an exercise I hope I do not have to repeat! Thank you for all your support, expertise and professionalism in achieving a very successful outcome.
