I decided to establish a Law Firm and would introduce Ekanayake & Associates as a Firm with a vision to providing cost effective legal solutions to clients when compared to the fees involved in obtaining legal services in Sri Lanka. Although, there are well established Law Firms in the country, their fees tend to be astronomical and this constantly puts clients into a dilemma as to whether to retain the services of these Law Firms or not.

Therefore, our main objective is to provide a cost effective niche legal service to our clients who expect the quality and standards of top Firms at a reasonable fee. 
We aim to help growing individuals and organizations that are dynamic and aspiring to achieve their desired goals, whether it is a personal or business matter. 

I am currently practicing as an attorney and specializing in the forte of Immigration, commercial and corporate litigation. The scope of work that I am usually involved in is attending consultations, advising clients about strategies and legal solutions to problems of clients, liaising with lawyers, carrying out case analysis, legal research on issues and giving legal opinions.

I am also involved in drafting applications and submissions for Supreme Court, Court of Appeal, Commercial High Court and District Court cases. I also handle matters relating to Customs, Labour Tribunals, Consumer Affairs Authority and Rent Board. I attend to courts on a daily basis and represent parties and make submission on their behalf.

I am well versed in giving legal opinions on complex Immigration & company matters, providing guidance with regulations and facilitate smooth operations of top companies by negotiating with government authorities etc.

I am also involved in drafting complex agreements such as facility agreements, carrying out due diligence for companies and ensuring company matters are in compliance with the current laws and regulations. Furthermore I also handle company secretarial work.

I have legal work experience, having worked in a few leading Law Firms for several years in Sri Lanka and USA. I was attached to the litigation department, I was mostly involved in complex cases that involved a lot of research, drafting applications and submissions and other documents relating to litigation, legal opinions and appearing and representing clients during Trials and proceedings. I also practiced in some of the renowned chambers of some senior advocates in Sri Lanka.  Thus, I have learnt to be independent as I had to solve the legal issues and resolve problems that were assigned during my tenures at aforementioned workplaces.

We cordially invite applications from outstanding individuals who are committed and dedicated to working in a Law Firm for the growth of the Firm and personal growth of the individual. If you are interested in joining us, then please e-mail us your CV and we may consider you for an interview depending on the availability of vacancies.
