Client Testimonials

Client Testimonials

On Managing Partner, Dr. Mohamed Karbal:

“I was fortunate to work with [Dr. Karbal] (using him as an expert witness on matters of Libyan law) in a large maritime case in Federal Court in New York. Dr. Karbal is a pleasure to work with; he is intelligent, diligent and thoughtful. His knowledge and understanding of Libyan law and maritime matters is impressive, and his analysis of the issues we dealt with in that context was thorough and insightful. . . Finally, I have found Dr. Karbal to be of the highest moral character.”

“We engaged Dr. Karbal as an expert witness on Libyan maritime law and practice. He was pleasant to work with, gave prompt and incisive advice, and stood up well to hours of aggressive questioning at deposition. We would not hesitate to engage him again if the need arises.”
