Testimonials

The team is very friendly, trustworthy and has diversified experience in this field. It is very devoted, enthusiastic‘.

Foreign qualified lawyers, extremely well equipped and delivered well within time. The entire team is very friendly and highly professional and I would say – they are more easily approachable as compared to other law firms. Nabeel Rehman was handling the matter in the most professional and effective manner and was readily available to address all queries and concerns when and where required. When he was not available, his colleague Aqeel Malik made sure that I was well looked after and attended me to resolve the issues at hand. They charged reasonable fees‘.

‘I have to say ANZ partner’s team and especially Nabeel Rehman exceeded my expectations. They were professional, competent and very accommodating. I was very pleased with my experience that I decided to return to them for other legal queries following this experience.

‘Their competence and experience is what made ANZ partners stand out for me. Their versatility too, which I was assured of after observing their wide and diverse clientele. The team comprises of experienced individuals, but the most refreshing thing was that their thinking and innovation is leaps and bounds ahead of any other firm I have seen in Pakistan‘.
