Practice Areas

Disputes, Litigation & Arbitration

Commercially aware and business focused, our team understands clients’ needs and structures its advice to help manage risk and prevent conflicts. However, conflicts may arise no matter the amount of care taken. Whether between shareholders and companies or between long-standing commercial partners, our goal is to achieve your desired commercial outcome with minimal disruption or cost.

Growing regulatory scrutiny and greater accountability by governments and individuals makes doing business in emerging markets risky and challenging. When disputes arise, it is important to resolve them efficiently and effectively.

We help clients through the lifecycle of transactions and business development. From pre-litigation negotiations to final resolution before the Supreme Court, we provide expert advice during every step of the process. Besides our court work, we have handled international arbitrations (including investment treaty disputes), alternative dispute mechanisms (like mediation) and governmental proceedings and investigations.

We are highly specialized in complex financial and labor litigation. In addition, we have significant experience in all areas of contentious and non-contentious insolvency. Our team has considerable experience in acting for lenders and borrowers in security enforcement guarantee recovery, unsecured recoveries, and insolvency.

And…let’s be honest, it’s not getting easier to stay compliant. Governments around the world are implementing policies that demand greater financial transparency, while seeking greater tax revenues. In 2018 alone, the Romanian Government modified the tax laws over 130 times. Navigating this changing and complex environment requires experience, skill and a deep understanding of the law and its practical impactions. Our tax litigation team provides skilled and experienced representation to clients at every stage of the tax controversy process, from pre-audit planning to the audit/inspection process and, if necessary, before the courts. We also represent clients with regard to criminal investigations and indictments.

Unlike accounting firms, our tax litigators can represent clients in all phases of tax disputes and have successfully defended clients in numerous tax matters.
