Litigation & Dispute Resolution
In all areas of life, one often encounters differences in opinion. Unfortunately, it is also an unpleasant fact that those differences often lead to disputes. In many instances, those disputes cannot be resolved unless a third party becomes involved. Often, such disputes end up in court. At Buwule & Mayiga Advocates, while we consider litigation for our clients whenever it is appropriate we subscribe to “alternative dispute resolution” considering the time cost and financial cost that may come with litigation and given that, disputes can also be resolved speedily and less formally through arbitration and alternative dispute resolution.
Buwule & Mayiga Advocates’ Lawyers are experienced and highly skilled to handle both litigation and alternative dispute resolution that can assist in this regard.We assist clients in litigation and mediation, conciliation and arbitration proceedings as an alternative dispute resolution forum in respect of all issues covered by our litigation services.
We at Buwule & Mayiga Advocates have the capacity to cover the whole of Uganda and in its intellectual property work. We also have a working partnership with international intellectual property focused firms to achieve a wider reach in the intellectual property practice in other jurisdictions.
Services we offer include among others:
- Patents, designs, trademarks, copyrights, and related rights services.

We are always seeking new ways of serving our clients and the community
in which we exist.
