Dispute Resolution

Dispute Resolution is one of the most dynamic and challenging areas of our practice.

Post 1990, Romania embarked on a process of modernization aiming at aligning his institutions and laws with the European standards and expectations. This endeavor resembled a lot to a roller coaster ride. The justice system and especially the courts made no exception and managed somehow to carve their way forward through countless legislative reforms, allegations of corruption and incompetence, overcrowded courtrooms and political influence.

Our Dispute Resolution team experienced first hand this entire process and is in the best position to help you navigate the uncertainties of the most complex contentious matters.

We are strong whether acting for claimants or defendants, strategic in the way we approach litigation and always seek to find you the best possible outcome in the shortest possible time. We advise on all types of disputes, both national and globally, representing clients in international arbitration (including ICC and ICSID) as well as local matters. Our firm offers advice on corporate and commercial litigation; real estate litigation; labour conflicts and employment litigation; insurance and transport contract disputes and professional negligence.
