Romania remains one of the fastest growing economies in the EU. Along with the growth in the Romanian private sector comes the need for an improved and increased infrastructure. And, along with these changes, come changes in the law that governs infrastructure improvements. We have a long history of involvement in, and extensive experience of, such projects. Our experience includes preparing, negotiating and implementing procurement contracts and delivering assistance post-contract implementation. And when it comes to public-private partnerships, we are experts in creating and delivering agreements that benefit all parties involved.
We act for public and private companies, sponsors, lenders, project originators, multilateral agencies and development banks in the financing, refinancing, acquisition and divestiture of significant projects. We provide legal advice regarding tender documentation, funding options and strategies, the preparation of bids and information memorandums, contract negotiations and additional forms of assistance throughout the project.
Moreover, we assist and represent our clients in various public procurement litigation, developing strategies depending on the approach recommended by the Romanian judicial administrative body (the National Council for Solving Disputes – CNSC) and by reference to national case law and relevant EU practices.
