Gulfvakil Law Partners strongly believe that the mechanical approach to legal services has limited scope. The industry needs to be looked at from a project-oriented strategic point of view. The conventional approach of initiating action on an issue-basis must be changed. Gulfvakil  Law Partners aims to establish the legal service domain with project oriented strategic approach. Gulfvakil  Law Partners makes efforts to break the territorial boarders of legal services via the concepts such as virtual legal counsel as much as possible while recognizing the importance of face to face legal service through their Global Legal Network. Gulfvakil  firmly believes that legal service should be accessible at everyone's fingertips. In this digital age of ODC courts, we perceive that the clients should be able to get the service of a lawyer without physical meeting for non-litigious matters.
