Solicitor Bill Holohan of Ireland is helping to establish a plan to reduce the backlog of cases in Pakistan’s courts

Our colleague Bill Holohan of Holohan Lane, Ireland, has begun working with the Pakistan branch of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators to develop proposals to address the huge backlog of cases in Pakistan's courts. The reduction would be through alternative dispute resolution systems. 

Mr Holohan told Irish Legal News: “If every case currently in the Indian court system continued all the way to the Indian Supreme Court, it will take 25 to 30 years to clear the backlog. There are similar problems in the Pakistani courts with around 2.2 million cases currently pending, and the backlog growing daily. I’m looking forward to helping in any way I can.”

D’Empaire has been featured as an Elite law firm in Latin Lawyer 250 24th edition, a select group of Latin American law firms chosen by Latin Lawyer for their paths towards excellence and unique areas of strength. 
According to Latin Lawyer, D’Empaire “remains a major force in the Venezuelan legal market, winning what limited cross-border work there still is thanks to its excellent international reputation and partner-heavy team. High-value M&As are very rare in Venezuela, but when they do happen D’Empaire is involved, particularly if there are cross-border elements to them […] Few firms in the country have been able to pull this off […] D’Empaire’s transactional practices are supported by other highly regarded offerings. Its environment, labour and tax departments are among the best in the market and busy thanks to constantly changing government regulations. It also offers an excellent white-collar crime and compliance offering, a rarity in Venezuela. Outside the country, the firm’s reputation is strong, and it maintains a high profile thanks to effective marketing strategies and a charismatic partnership. Many of its top partners have experience working at major US firms, and these connections are clearly used to maximise cross-border work. The firm’s senior partnership regularly speaks at international conferences and events.”
