The client is at the heart of what we do.

Established in 2002, Olephant is the brainchild of founding partner Jan Mugerwa. With a wealth of experience acting on commercial litigation matters, Jan set about combining these skills with a business model and structure that puts the client at the heart of what we do. We know that the litigation process can be daunting, complex and challenging. Our aim is to give our clients the best chance of a successful outcome. This stems from a belief that it is the relationship with our clients that matters. They have the reassurance that their needs and objectives are being met.

We have seen steady organic growth over the last 16 years. In addition to the development of our commercial expertise, we have also developed a strong employment law offering.

The blend of people who work with us allows us to build up quickly a comprehensive view of a client’s case. A niche London based boutique law firm, our portfolio includes a number of high profile cases. As we have a strong skill set, there is little that we are unable to take on. Olephant has acted on a number of complex cases including an action for fraud, breach of contract and confidence involving a contract for the development of an offshore oil field in Iran. We had conduct of this case from issue in the Royal Court in Jersey, culminating in a successful judgment in the Privy Council. More recently, we act in connection with a case involving shareholder rights that has resulted in a number of precedent forming decisions of the High Court in London.
