Dispute Resolution is one of the most dynamic and challenging areas of our practice.
Post 1990, Romania embarked on a process of modernisation aimed at bringing its institutions and laws in line with European standards and expectations. This process very much resembled a roller coaster ride. The justice system, and especially the courts, 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 this entire process first-hand, which puts them in a unique position to help companies 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 the best possible outcome in the shortest possible time. We advise on all types of disputes, both nationally and internationally, representing clients in international arbitration (including ICC and ICSID) as well as in 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.
