We take pride in assisting our clients in dispute prevention but, if necessary, we know how to prevail in the courtroom. In 2015 Chambers Europe listed CMS in Band 1 for Dispute Resolution in CEE.

We represent clients from all industries before courts, arbitral tribunals, public prosecutors and regulatory authorities. Our in-depth industry knowledge combined with procedural savvy, outstanding advocacy skills and high efficiency make our CEE Disputes team invincible in the eyes of many clients of ours.

Sectors in which we have a particularly strong track record of providing dispute resolution services include construction and infrastructure, financial institutions and services, life sciences, energy, technology, media and telecommunications, and consumer products. Most importantly, apart from the dispute resolution services we offer our clients sophisticated dispute prevention solutions as well as early case assessment services by the use of a cutting edge software tool called CMS Evidence
