Cyber Crime

The Cyber-crime law(s) of Pakistan are relatively new; cases booked under the Pakistan Electronic Crimes Act, 2016 are as yet, pending adjudication as cases of first impression in the lower courts and High Courts. Our arguments in various cases are lending to the development and shaping of jurisprudence in this sector. The nature of investigations by FIA with the added element of the novelty of a digital element in each case makes these engagements both challenging and complicated and one in which we are fast developing a reputation for expertise. We are at the forefront of legal developments in this area and offer expert advice in this area.
