Romania remains one of the fastest growing economies in the EU. Along with the growth in the private sector comes the need for improved and increased infrastructure. And, along with these changes come changes in the law that governs infrastructure improvements. We have a long history of involvements in such projects. Our experience includes preparing, negotiating, and implementing procurement contracts and delivering assistance post-contract implementation. We work across sectors. And when it comes to public-private partnerships, you will find us to be experts in creating and delivering agreements that benefit all parties involved.
We act for contracting partners (public and private companies), sponsors, lenders, project originators and multilateral agencies and development banks in the financing, refinancing, acquisition, and divestiture of significant projects. We provide counsel about tender documentation, funding options and strategies, preparing bids and information memorandums, conducting contract negotiations, and additional forms of assistance throughout the project.
Moreover, we assist and represent our clients in various public procurement litigations, conceiving strategies depending also on the approach up fronted by the Romanian judicial administrative body (the National Council for Solving Disputes – CNSC) by the national case-law in this field and the EU relevant practice.
