Over the past three decades, this International Law Firm has established a reputation of excellence and quality, catering for various industries including banking & finance, energy & resources, infrastructure, public-private partnerships, Engineering & Procurement Contracts, real estate, appropriate dispute resolution (ADR), both at a national and international level.
The late Justice K M A Samdani, a former judge of the Lahore High Court and Federal Secretary Law, Government of Pakistan, was one of the founding partners of Samdani & Qureshi. The late Justice Samdani specialized in legislative drafting, commercial arbitration, consultancy, and advocacy before the Supreme Court of Pakistan. On April 11, 2013, Pakistan lost one of its best judges and a national moral compass. While for many people, an important public office brings greatness for them, in the case of Justice Samdani, he brought greatness and dignity to the office of a judge. Justice Samdani is commonly known as “the judge who granted bail to Bhutto.” Yet this one act was just a minor illustration of his greatness.
