Civil Litigation

We offer a full range of Belize civil litigation services in contentious disputes in the Courts in Belize including the Supreme Court, the Court of Appeal and the Caribbean Court of Justice which is the highest appellate court for Belize. We also represent our clients before various tribunals (including tax tribunals) and statutory bodies as well as in arbitral proceedings concerning various commercial disputes.
Our experience in Belize civil litigation includes complex multijurisdictional asset protection and recovery cases, commercial litigation, constitutional and administrative relief, judicial review, extradition, admiralty (including arrest and detention of vessels), legal challenges to tax assessments, environmental and petroleum law, telecommunications and broadcasting and real estate.

As a common law jurisdiction, many of the remedies which are available in England such as injunctions, search orders, and Norwich Pharmacal orders which are used to aid substantive proceedings are also available in the Belize Courts. These orders are powerful tools particularly in multijurisdictional fraud cases where clients require assets to be traced and protected pending litigation.

Along with a wealth of experience, our attorneys are known to be fearless, tireless and forceful in the courts in advancing our clients cases. We have a drive to find innovative, cost effective and efficient solutions for the positive resolution of our clients’ legal disputes.
